Construction???


How can we construct
bamboos???


How is the ‘original‘ Bamboo
Construction???

Classification of Bamboo Construction

Substitutive:

bamboo

to replace other possible material with bamboo,

thus bamboo will be constructed to fit with other type of
construction.

established structure

Substitutive:

Laminated Bamboo

established structure
from timber

laminated bamboo

established structure
from steel

bamboo split truss

Substitutive:

Split Construction

established steel reinforced concrete

bamboo reinforced concrete

Substitutive:

Bamboo Reinforced Concrete

established space
structure from metal

bamboo space frame


mostly three dimensional frame


avoid eccentricity in force transfer


poles under tension or compression


using steel connector

Substitutive:

Poles Construction

Conventional:

bamboo

a set of unwritten rules, a set of agreed, stipulated or generally
accepted standards, norms or criteria.

the construction that come from the specific character of
bamboo


Convention:

bamboo construction

Conventional Bamboo Construction:


Traditional or Vernacular


Modernized or Engineered Conventional

structures made by empirical
builders

further development using scientific
approach


Conventional: Traditional/ Vernacular

Bamboo Poles Construction


mostly consist of planar frames (two
dimensional frame
)


mostly in one layer



bamboo poles under compressive or bending
stresses


present of eccentricity in force transfer


using fish
-
mouth, rope, plug
-
in, and positive
-
fitting connection

Conventional: Traditional/
Vernacular

Bamboo Splits/Woven
Construction

Plastered Bamboo Construction


relatively simple form


plastered/ rendered with mud,
lime

or cow dung

Conventional: Modernized/ Engineered

Bamboo Poles Construction


two or three dimensional frames


mostly in more than one layer



poles under compressive or bending stresses


present of eccentricity in force transfer


using nut
-
bolts connector and fish
-
mouth
connection

Conventional: Modernized/ Engineered

Bamboo Splits/Woven Construction


relatively complicated form


mostly in experimental building


Plastered Bamboo Construction


plastered/ rendered with mortar


with or without additional chicken
wire


combined with poles structure

Split

Traditional
