Bamboo architecture the book
The website is about Bamboo and the role it can play in a beautiful positive ecological, low carbon future for planet earth. It is about the groups and individuals around the world that work with it from INBAR in China to Peru. From the great bamboo architecture of Simon Velez in Colombia to Vo Trong Nghia in Vietnam. It is about the global attempt towards using bamboo to help climate change and CO 2 reduction in the propagation and use of the material from reforestation to emergency housing. It is about housing for Africa, Asia and South America for people that have no access to other materials. This website attempts to create the Global Village out of Bamboo as a sensible material for use in art, architecture and design. This site is also an attempt at creating a great book on Bamboo by soliciting more projects from around the world for future additions and as a international forum for people concerned with bamboo. We value your input if you work in bamboo or know anything about bamboo this website is about you.

We have tried to avoid using technical terms and names whenever possible.

Bamboo Identification Manual
The Bamboo Identification Manual project is an effort spearheaded by a group of bamboo enthusiasts from around the world, designed to put the ability to identify the many bamboos directly in the hands of the people it helps the most. Proper identification plays a critical role in determining what species should be planted and for what purpose, and also gives insight into the potential uses of existing groves of bamboo, ranging from cool green shade on a hot summer day, to food, shelter, musical instruments, and much more. For the growers, researchers, artists and craftsmen involved with BIM, the ages of stone, bronze, and iron are long past, and the renewable, resilient Age of Bamboo is the future.

In 1993, when I planted my first Bamboo, I didn't know anything about Indocalamus, Sasa, Phyllostachys, Bambusa Today I'm totally seduced and involved by their energy and vitality and by their charming elegance and their beauty (think about the Japanese and Chinese water-colour painters) and some other dimensions.
I own more than 100 different species today in my collection, but it's becoming more and more difficult to hold such a luxuriant explosion of this "living" plant in my 10.000 square meters' garden. Also because every plant is meant to be placed in harmony with the other existing plants: olive-trees,
