Africa: Use Bamboo in Sustainable Development

Governments should pay more attention to the role that bamboo and rattan can play in building more sustainable and greener economies, a pressure group has told a UN meeting.

"Bamboo and rattan are not always seen as tools to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals. We believe they bring major opportunities," the International Network for Bamboo and Rattan (INBAR), an intergovernmental group based in Beijing, China, told the UN Forum on Forests in New York, United States earlier this month.

For example, bamboo can reduce soil erosion and restore degraded lands, and ultimately help protect the livelihoods of people who depend on forest ecosystems. Products derived from the two plants could also bring income to millions of people in developing countries, the group says.

INBAR, which has 40 member states, called on policymakers to include bamboo and rattan in their action plans for forest development.

INBAR also presented the Global Assessment of Bamboo and Rattan, an initiative that aims to exchange knowledge and data about bamboo and rattan. The assessment is expected to be launched at the World Forestry Congress in Durban, South Africa, in September 2015.

Sinthian, Senegal, Architects: Toshiko Mori (2015).

In a rural village of Sinthian in south-eastern Senegal, the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation (US) has realized, in collaboration with locals, has realized a new cultural centre, designed by Toshiko Mori.

 

«The building is constructed using local materials and local builders have shared their sophisticated knowledge of working with bamboo, brick, and thatch. These traditional techniques are combined with design innovations by Mori. The customary pitched roof is inverted and will be capable of collecting approximately 40% of the villagers’ domestic water usage in fresh rainfall».

Miller Hull - Bullitt Center, The Greenest Commercial Building in the World | Building with wood | Scoop.it
Enrico De Angelis's insight:

The Bullitt Center — the first urban building of its kind and commonly regarded as ‘the greenest office building in the world’— not only represents the level of sustainability possible in a city setting, it signifies a shift in the actual process of how buildings are designed and demonstrates the range of opportunities for inventiveness and creativity that are possible when integrated design teams target aggressive efficiency goals.

BARCODE room and its FURNITURE-WALL project - ZEROICHI studio

BARCODE room and its FURNITURE-WALL project - ZEROICHI studio | Building with wood | Scoop.it
Barcode room is a concept studio apartment composed of product furniture-walls which move freely from side to side, permitting the resident to customize the size of space to fit a variety of uses.  Placing functional elements such as storage and furniture into these walls, only to be pulled out when in use, also allows for more of the floor area to be used by the inhabitant and guests, thus creating a space where one is able to both comfortably live and entertain a different number of guests easily.

Through the use of the furniture-wall, or bars, barcode room takes the typical studio space made for a single resident and allows it to be transformed into a space where one can live and friends can gather.  Each furniture-wall is a combination of selection from 12 types of components to make a single bar.  Depending on the combination of components, various types of bars can be created, such as a living bar, kitchen bar, or sleeping bar.  Just as each object in a store has it’s own barcode, each usage of the apartment has its own layout, or barcode.   The composition of the various components into different bars, as well as the position of these bars, allows the user to create their own unique collection of barcodes for their life.

Enrico De Angelis's insight:

Studio_01 is a partnership between two Tokyo designers, Alex Knezo and Akinori Hamada, Japan.

Digital, simple forms, user customization ...

the idea of the Furniture-wall is old but its poor version has something new.

OAS1S “treescrapers” are modern skyscrapers inspired by trees

OAS1S “treescrapers” are modern skyscrapers inspired by trees | Building with wood | Scoop.it

OAS1S has introduced a unique concept for the future of urban green living:  a 21st century home that merges architecture and nature into one. The OAS1S houses are inspired by trees that act as modern skyscrapers. These “treescrapers” consist of wood and leaves, collect sun and water, plus provide oxygen, shelter and food. The tall, slim and detached houses have average tree-like dimensions of 6 x 6 x 12 m, with spectacular vegetation facades. The basic architecture is shaped as a number 1, and gives people the experience of being one with nature. Each home can be combined with others to create forest-like districts that mix trees with tree-like houses, in an organic and public, compact and car-free lay-out.  Construction is completed using recycled wood, organic high-value insulation, green walls and triple glazing to create off-grid, 100% self-sufficient homes.

Timber buildings means lower costs

Timber buildings means lower costs | Building with wood | Scoop.it

The most substantial savings for timber construction compared with conventional methods were:

Commercial office building – 12.4 per centAged care facility – 13.9 per centApartment building – 2.2 per cent lowerPortal-framed industrial shed was 9.4 per cent lower cost

University of Technology Sydney co-developed the research method and collaborated on detailed design, cost and site productivity issues. Solutions were tested against available products, including cross-laminated timber, laminated veneer lumber and glulam and existing supply chain for these products.

 

Enrico De Angelis's insight:

New research appears to prove the case and the timber development sector is educating the rest of the industry.

Commercial Building Costing Cases Studies – Traditional Design versus Timber Project is a detailed report about - four major commercial building types in both timber and conventional construction, with a quantity surveyor preparing cost estimate comparisons for each solution.

Timber_offices

Timber_offices | Building with wood | Scoop.it

Timber is the only renewable building material. It is strong and light, making it easy to transport and erect. It can also be machined to very high tolerances, making it ideal for prefabrication. New wood products such as CLT (cross laminated timber), and recent advances in computer-controlled manufacturing, now make it an attractive choice for office construction.

If acoustics, floor vibration and fire safety are addressed early in the design process, wood can be left exposed – saving on the cost of finishes and adding to the beauty of the interior. This is where our multidisciplinary approach can offer real cost savings. We believe that wood can create office buildings that are attractive, sustainable and affordable.

Magical houses, made of bamboo | Building with wood | Scoop.it
You've never seen buildings like this. The stunning bamboo homes built by Elora Hardy and her team in Bali twist, curve and surprise at every turn. They defy convention because the bamboo itself is so enigmatic. No two poles of bamboo are alike, so every home, bridge and bathroom is exquisitely unique. In this beautiful, immersive talk, she shares the potential of bamboo, as both a sustainable resource and a spark for the imagination. "We have had to invent our own rules," she says.

Evolver: a "wood sculpture" by EPFL

Evolver: a "wood sculpture" by EPFL | Building with wood | Scoop.it
Evolver is an inhabitable sculpture erected for the Zermatt Festival, the renowned annual event for Chamber Music featuring the Berlin Philharmonic amongst many others. As an architectural artefact, Evolver intervenes spatially on the panorama surrounding Zermatt and was designed and executed by a team architecture students in ALICE’s second year studio. In an effort to take full advantage of the site’s extensive and astounding views, the project sits strategically next to the lake Stelli at an altitude of 2536m. Its structure consists mainly of a succession of 24 rotating frames supporting an enclosed space that visitors are encouraged to enter. As he or she progresses through the space, a concealed but uninterrupted 720° movement is unravelling along a transformed panorama. This transformation occurs inside, while a person is moving along a selective string of openings only to be caught peeling off a sequence of unexpected views from the original landscape. Wobbling below and above a distant horizon, ground and sky have been re-orchestrated into an orbiting panorama by a journey that has already culminated to where it started: a loophole on the skyline.
