“Bouw met Bamboe!” is set to be the first of its kind gathering in the Netherlands, focusing on bamboo in architecture and construction. It’s scheduled from Wednesday, June 19, to Friday, June 21, 2024, at BlueCity, Rotterdam. The event will be conducted in English, and it will feature a symposium, several workshops, and an exhibition. It’s designed to ignite passion for bamboo as a building material in the Netherlands, welcoming Dutch architects, designers, engineers, carpenters, farmers, building product manufacturers, and students. Whether you are already working with bamboo or are simply interested in its potential, the event aims to bring like-minded individuals together on a common interdisciplinary platform. Engage in a dialogue, exchange ideas, and contribute to the shared development of bamboo as a viable building material for Dutch architecture.

Symposium

During the two-day symposium, we will be bringing together several renowned experts from diverse fields related to bamboo construction. From architectural design to engineering innovation, our speakers are at the forefront of bamboo research and application. The lineup is still under development, and we will be adding even more exciting voices to enrich this extraordinary gathering. Stay tuned for more updates.
