Bambu Geodesic Dome

A BAMBU GEODESIC DOME ASSEMBLY workshop was rolled out at Don Bosco TVET Center Balamban. This one-day workshop was a collaboration between the Philippine Institute of Architects (PIA) -Cebu, Don Bosco and Bamboo Horizons.

The workshop included the Basics of Bamboo, the Computation of a Geodesics Dome and the hands on Assembly of a 6 meter diameter Geodesic Dome.The same Bamboo workshop was done last April 6, 2022 at Don Bosco Boys Home Liloan.

We thank our Bosconian Architects – Arch. Bryan Auman for sharing his advocacy for bamboo as a sustainable source of lumber for construction, Arch. Eric Nacorda representing PIA-Cebu for facilitating the roll-out of this bamboo workshop and Mr. Robert of Bamboo Horizons.

This workshop is in line with Don Bosco TVET Center Balamban’s advocacy for a Green TVET and eventually for providing green jobs to the community.
