What to expect 

Bamboo belongs to the tropics. It is a miracle material that can solve many construction and design challenges in the Philippines and Southeast Asia, from climate resilience to material sustainability. When we learn how to harness its versatile and ecological qualities, we can build stronger reinforced homes in a better environment.

Hosted by award-nominated bamboo architectural and industrial design firm OCCO Living, we invite you to a 6-day bamboo workshop on Sustainable Building and Design with Bamboo” from 5 - 10 September, 2022 on Siargao Island in the Philippines.

Learn hands-on about the principles of building and designing with the giant grass for sturdy and resilient typhoon shelter homes and innovative structures.

The intensive workshop will tackle specific construction techniques on two workshop projects: an A-Frame Bungalow and an 8-meter Water Tower, built based on bamboo master builder Jörg Stamm’s principles. These techniques are essential in rebuilding homes that can withstand strong winds and earthquakes as the island recovers from the devastation of Typhoon Rai (Odette).

Don’t miss the only chance working with the experts Jorg Stamm  and Munir Vahanvati - their first ever workshop in the Philippines!

Through this workshop, you will learn about:

📍Designing with the giant grass,            bamboo

📍 Reinforcement principles on load         and strength against strong winds       and earthquakes

📍Joinery techniques

📍Traditional bamboo working tools

📍Different treatment methods

📍Planting and harvesting methods
