Jörg Stamm

Bamboo Construction Specialist, Colombia

Jörg Stamm, originally a master-carpenter from Germany, is based in Colombia and discovered his passion for bamboo - a traditional local building material - during reconstruction after an earthquake in 1995. He now plays a leading role in an international community of bamboo builders making modern structures that avoid the need for tropical hardwoods and other environmentally damaging materials. His projects include buildings from housing to schools and meeting places, bridges, towers and other structures challenging the strength and resilience of bamboo, often combined with modern materials.
