On the other hand the time-tested vernacular architecture or ‘Assam-type’ building is also unable to perform due to intensified calamities brought by climate change, fast depleting indigenous materials, change in user expectation and sporadic intervention of popular modern material and technology.
be the role of earthquake engineering in the improvement of those solutions that have proven to be seismically inadequate, presenting some notorious national and international examples. In particular, the case of the vernacular technology of bamboo ‘hollow bahareque’ developed in Colombia and Ecuador is …
Rural construction of bamboo vernacular houses of Ecuador are made almost exclusively with vegetable material, using bamboo poles for most of the structure, esterilla for walls and floors, palm leaves or grass for the roof and, where flooding is frequent, timber poles to raise the floor from the ground. The esterilla of the walls is left uncovered.
Bamboo Workshops The Architectural Association School of Architecture is organizing the next Bamboo workshop from August 17 – September 2, 2017. In our fifth Haitian adventure, we will be working in groups to intensively learn a design methodology, software tools, and use this to propose an efficient, iconic bamboo structure.
architecture in seismic zone Architecture in Seismic Zone (ASZ) refers –in its broadest sense – to the responsibilities architects should take in order to help solve the seismic problem of human settlements in highly hazardous seismic zones.
