I do not have any info, but there is an awesome book about the structural
uses of Bamboo called Grow Your Own House by Simon Velez a building he
designed is found at: www.zeri.org/pavilion/pavilion.htm
Just a cool quote below:
"Construction permit: Through 22 weeks of testing, and with the support
important German scientists and institutes, ZERI demonstrated that the
bamboo pavilion complies with Germany's most stringent construction
regulations. Our pavilion is the only one at the EXPO built twice: once in
Colombia for testing...and once in Hannover for you to enjoy!"
The Open Source Ecology project, OpenHouse
has goals almost identical to Reider's work, and, i suspect, to www.omslag.nl/wonen/ecobouw.html
Please translate the key pointsof this into English. Let's create a list of contacts to all these
