Figure Constructive Solutions for One-Storey Buildings The structural solutions here tested through full scale frames can be easily implemented in different types of buildings, which are common in a large number of states like India, Latin America, East Asia or Sub-Saharan Africa [ 40 , 41 , 42 , 43 ], most of them rich in bamboo. Example of plan view for religious centre with units A and B.
Modern Bamboo Structures
Discussion The three proposed types of joint provide different solutions in terms of technology. Final Comments and Conclusions In this work three different types of bamboo joints are proposed. Acknowledgments The authors wish to thank Elisa Bonannini for technical support and Andrea Mannucci for the construction of the full scale specimens. Author Contributions Mauro Sassu conceived and designed the types of joints, the full scale specimens and the units for buildings; Linda Giresini, Anna De Falco and Mario Lucio Puppio contributed to the design of the system, the numerical analysis and conducting of the tests.
