in architecture have diversified considerably, so that today, even
structures with large spans - such as bridges - are built with this
material. Renowned universities such as the ETH Zurich or the SUTD in
Singapore have conducted research on engineered bamboo which will
further expand its use. The third edition of this manual provides a
systematic overview of the applications and processing methods of this
renewable material. Recent inspiring bamboo buildings have been added.
