    Bamboo Paraboloids

    gabsvillalobos Oct 14 '08 12

    Hey there!
    I've been gone for a while, but I wanted to share with you these pics I took today.
    As part of a seminar/workshop about sustainability and building with bamboo, three bamboo paraboloids were built at the main courtyard (these will be used for a project in Veracruz, near the Gulf of Mexico).

    This is the bamboo, a native species called guadua angustifolia.
