A group of UW architecture students and faculty traveled to the Phillippines this summer for a study abroad program "Architecture Philippines: Building with Bamboo." The students worked with local students and learned about the potential of bamboo as a building material and a cultural symbol.

Bamboo is a historically important building material in Filipino culture, and can be a sustainable building material as a native, fast-growing plan in the Phillipines. Learn more about the program on the UW Architecture blog and in the video below.
