Successful showcase of structural bamboo systems at AIA 2013!


“It’s not where you start in life, it’s where you end up and all the places you went in between.” – United States General Colin L. Powell former U.S. Secretary of State

For the closing keynote speaker of the stimulating, three-day “Building Leaders” convention in Colorado, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) selected one of America’s most admired public figures to share wisdom and insight in becoming a great leader.

AIA 2013 was a great experience for Lamboo and our partners. Over the course of the show, Lamboo representatives Luke Schuette, CEO and Dir. of Research, along with Matt Paul, Dir. of Architectural Product Development, met with leaders, designers, and architects from all across the globe discussing the future of the building community, and the best steps towards a sustainable future.

Many of the attendees at the expo were shocked to learn of a structural grade bamboo material that can be easily integrated into their projects while out performing traditional sources in nearly every performance category.

Great connections were made at the show but we would like to especially thank our partners for their collaboration in making AIA 2013 such a huge success! These partners either incorporated Lamboo materials in their expo booth designs or were represented at the Lamboo booth. These partners include: H Window Company, NanaWall, Kolbe Windows & Doors, Dover Windows and Doors, Max-R, Pacific Architectural Millwork, G.R. Plume Company, Bless Construction Inc., and Alamco Wood Products.

These companies represent industry leaders and innovators who have chosen to take advantage of the tremendous benefits bamboo based Lamboo materials can offer.

Solar Decathlon China

The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon (SD) is an award-winning program that challenges collegiate teams to design, build and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient and attractive. The resulting homes demonstrate to students, the public and industry, that solar-powered houses are fully functional, comfortable and sustainable living spaces. SD aims to promote collaboration in the solar industry and to facilitate innovation and adoption of solar energy and energy-efficiency technologies.

During the competition, the energy consumed by each house is generated by solar energy solutions. The competition will assess the team’s ability to conserve energy, control their physical environment and ability to be fully energy sufficient. Modeled after the Olympic decathlon competition, each home will be evaluated on their performance in ten contests.

Since the launch of the Solar Decathlon in 2002, six subsequent competitions have been hosted in the U.S. and Europe, involving over 100 collegiate teams. The competition demonstrates innovation in the solar industry’s innovation and identifies immediately viable technologies.

In Washington D.C., on the afternoon of January 18, 2011, China’s National Energy Administration (NEA), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Peking University (PKU) and Applied Materials signed the Solar Decathlon China (SD China) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), launching this premier international competition for the first time in Asia as one of the Sino-US energy collaborative programs.
