Bamboo connections

We should optimize characteristics of bamboo to create unique, special construction design that only can be made of bamboo or effectively made with bamboo.

Some criterion suitable for bamboo joint:

• Joints for hollow tube.

• Easy to make with simple tool, low-skilled workers.

• Low-cost, could be produced very cheap.

• Low technical requirement.

• Minimise on holes, cuts, notches.

• Strong, durable


• Many bamboo poles are assembled into a structural frame without any special tools (sandwich construction).

• Bundled poles: easy, could be made of big bamboo or small bamboo pole.

• Lashing : avoid longitudinal split crack ( square lashing, round lashing).

• Bolt and nut: bamboo bolt or steel bolt.
