Key Dates: Registration is OPEN! [https://bambooconference.com/registration/]Registration Deadline: May 15, 2022Engineered Bamboo for Sustainable Construction Conference <virtual>May 17 - 19, 2022
We are pleased to announce an international conference on Engineered Bamboo for Sustainable Construction 2022, organized jointly by the University of British Columbia, the World Bamboo Organization and Zhejiang Agricultural and Forestry University. The conference will be held online, and registration is free. [https://bambooconference.com/registration/]
The conference will focus on the use of bamboo in construction, with particular emphasis on the rapidly growing use of engineered bamboo. This sustainable material is evolving rapidly, and the conference will look at how it is being incorporated into an increasingly diverse range of uses. On the first day, the conference will look at products and applications, including product examples, the road to commercialization, and research needs. The second day will present the latest research results and innovative ideas for bamboo in construction. The third and final day will look at the environmental rationale for using bamboo, including carbon emissions and the circular economy.

JUDGING CRITERIA [https://www.worldbambooworkshop.com/copy-of-competition]
The evaluation process for entries to the 4th WBW International Bamboo Pavilion Design Competition is based on criteria adapted to creative, technical, social, economic, and ecological requirements. These criteria are not comprehensive and not all criteria are applicable to each design. They simply provide an orientation framework and basis for judging, which is complemented by each individual juror’s expertise and professional background.
Each member of the Jury is passionately committed to providing a fair and unbiased evaluation of all entries. The Judging Committee is a selected panel of industry experts from around the world, qualified in recognizing excellence in architecture, eco-design, and sustainability. Their talents and contributions to their respective fields are genuinely aspirational and all jurors are in leading or founder positions within their organizations.
The judging criteria include the following: [https://www.worldbambooworkshop.com/copy-of-competition]
· Innovation — does the design stand out, provide something new and unique, or supplement/improve upon a previous concept?
· Aesthetics — artistic value of the form, shape, color, texture, finishing, engineering, material used, etc.
· Functionality — ease of use, safety and maintenance.
· Durability — the quality and longevity of the design.
· Impact — the benefits delivered to the user and/or society by the design.
· Utility — does the design meet the intended purpose and needs of the user?
· Ecological compatibility — potential environmental and/or ecological impact
· Emotional quotient (EQ) — in addition to fulfilling its practical purpose, will the design create a sense of enjoyment and satisfaction?
· Feasibility of production — how realistic is it, technically and economically, to bring this design to production and use? Consider these issues regarding the design:
1) Clarity of structural concepts (primary structure is sound and stable, static concepts are distinguished and thought-through)
2) The bamboo poles are well-dimensioned, and the support distance is reasonably integrated in the design (whatever species and size of poles has yet to be documented)
3) Simplicity and elegance reign over complexity and costly designs (strong curves must be heat bent and are expensive, or culms are cut and later reinforced with resins and glass fibers)
4) Protection by design principles like big boots and big hat (or membranes) reign over sculptural design under weather exposure and protective paints.
5) “Simple” joinery like dowels, bolts or fish-mouth and rope reigns over technically complex joint-systems (conus joints, steel-plates and laser-cut fittings)
The Judging Committee will use a scoring scale between 1-10 points. Jury members are assigned categories based on their specific backgrounds and design expertise. All projects are viewed and judged randomly and anonymously to ensure unbiased and fair judging.
