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.
