We want to promote earth and bamboo as excellent materials for sustainable architecture.


Earthen and bamboo architecture has not only a long tradition in human settlement, but it also offers many advantages for contemporary architecture. BASEhabitat wants to foster the consideration of socio-cultural, economical and ecological aspects in the architectural design and construction.


It is necessary to establish a global network and enforce exchange of knowledge and experiences in the field of earthen and bamboo architecture.



Who can participate?

Architects, craftsmen/women, engineers, people in education, teachers and lecturers from all over the world, interested in building with earth and bamboo.
