Workshop On Bamboo Construction 2013 – Bamboo Gazebo Bangalore

Date: April 09, 2013 Organizer: CGBMT, Bangalore

Hands on workshop along with lecture on Bamboo building construction, Bamboo construction in disaster management. A Bamboo Gazebo for Aditigreenscapes was built during the Contact Lecture Week over a period 10 days starting from April, 2013 at the CGBMT Campus, Bangalore. The participants were PG Diploma students and Bamboo artisans. The gazebo was constructed in a very innovative manner, by using bamboo splits with spacers to create branched columns. These columns continued till the apex of the roof, culminating at a single point. Rainwater harvesting was also kept in mind and a small collection pond was built beside it.
