Bamboo: A Material for Landscape and Garden Design.
von Trier, Harry.
Bamboo: A Material for Landscape and Garden Design.
Of all the sustainable materials now available, none is more interesting than bamboo. Botanically classi?ed as a grass, bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on the earth, easy to harvest, alternately ?exible or stiff (depending on the application) and extremely strong (stronger, in fact, than steel), and is in use in applications as diverse as ?ooring, building structures, furniture, aeronautics, and high-end racing bikes. "Bamboo" is a portrait of this dynamic and amazing material and a guide to its many uses across the design spectrum. Striking color illustrations convey exhaustive technical and botanical information while experts in ?elds such as biotechnology, wood technology, and horticulture explain technical properties such as the different varieties, their methods of propagation and habitat requirements, as well as information on the uses of bamboo in numerous design situations. A must-have volume for any designer interested in materials. German/English.
