>....Bamboo Panel describes a design proposal for ultra-lightweight façade and pavilion panels composed of rapid-growing bamboo and individually 3d-printed joints. This synergy between these easy-to-process materials offers the potential for a modular prefabrication and enables a seamless fabrication in a fully automated manner.

//With a tensile strength comparable to steel and the ability to bind large amounts of CO2, bamboo is still an underrrated material in the building industry. This project questions how the underestimated potential of bamboo can be improved in combination with digital manufacturing technologies to expand its application from a locally used material to an industrial building material for potential application in facade construction or temporary pavilion structures.
