SkillUp – Bamboo Engineering – Jules de Laage
April 29 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
At Bamboo U, people from all over the world gather to learn about the potentials and limitations of bamboo. Through the interactions of this ever-growing international audience with experienced professionals – we design and build structures that continuously aim at pushing the engineering properties of this astonishing sustainable material of the future.
After graduating from the McGill School of Architecture, Jules spent some time in Brazil where he developed knowledge in bio-construction. His focus on bamboo was inspired by the German master builder Jörg Stamm, who brought him to Indonesia as an apprentice. He joined Bamboo U as a program manager in 2017.
