We have created a website which will go more into depth on some of the projects
that you have seen in this book. It will also be a place to post comments concerning
what is in the book and what is not. The website is also asking for information on
other present projects and future projects that we would like to include in our next
addition. Please visit www.bambooarchitecturethebook.com to learn more about
the past role of bamboo and help be part of the future.
page on art is looking to display examples of bamboo used in art pieces such
as artists using bamboo for sculpture and other art and design projects. These
examples can be from contemporary art projects as well as beautiful old Chinese
water color scrolls. The designs can be from products, it is said early planes and
bicycles made use of bamboo
are looking to list as many links as possible to groups and individuals that are
committed to using bamboo and promoting its use from cultivation to design.
There is a lot of
evidence that bamboo can be very instrumental in the attempt to deal with CO2
problems and Global Warming. We have a section that deals with this particular
advantage, seeking articles and groups who have made some success in this area.
help support this website we are soliciting some advertising on a special advertising
page. Those ads that relate to individual or groups actually using bamboo with be
given a good discount.

us the information or the link so we can list it in our competitions page. Some of
the winners may well be chosen to appear in future editions of the book as well as
shown on this website.
