'Long, light and strong. Bamboo in the Future of Design' is the title of the conference that Jörg Stamm is presenting as part of the NEB goes South Cycle on June 3, Monday, at 6.30pm, in FAUP's Fernando Távora Auditorium, with online streaming [register in advance HERE].

The conference at FAUP is part of the Construction with Bamboo workshop that will take place between June 10 and 14 at Herdade da Fonte in Odemira.

Jörg Stamm is widely recognized for his exceptional skill and creativity as one of the world's leading master bamboo builders. After a career as a structural carpenter in Germany, he moved to Colombia in 1994. Since then, he has worked with designers such as Colombian architect Simon Velez, Linda Garland, founder of the Environmental Bamboo Foundation, or IBUKU and on large-scale bamboo projects such as The Heart of School or The Arc in Green School in Indonesia. Jörg Stamm has founded and helped start several bamboo-related companies and has organized numerous initial and advanced training programmes on bamboo in construction throughout Asia, Latin America, Africa and, more recently, in Europe.

NEB goes South is a platform led by FAUP with the participation of the Valencia School of Architecture, the Toulouse School of Architecture, the Department of Architecture, the Alma Mater Studiorum of the University of Bologna, the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Zagreb, and the School of Architecture of the National Technical University of Athens.
