How cool is this? Lamboo Inc. and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have partnered together to research the current use of sustainable materials being used in the Architectural industry, and to implement the use of engineered bamboo for architectural and structural applications. Products created so far are: pressed panels, plywood and structural members, as well as window and door systems. The best part? The bamboo is grown in the midst of central Illinois farmland! [Per Luke at Lamboo, Inc.: "We are sourcing our material from Central and South America, and some from China. Final fabrication into beams takes place here in the US."]
Lamboo Inc. will be supplying material for structural applications to be utilized in the final design of the University's entry into the fourth Solar Decathlon event, which will mark the second time the University of Illinois will be involved. Students are also working with Lamboo to design portable architectural elements, including furniture, light fixtures, etc. Pretty awesome stuff, if you ask me....
