Photographer's Note

The guadua is a versatile material, used for the construction of: fences, boats and musical instruments. Known scientifically as guadua angustifolia kunth, guadua is characterized by its strength and durability, being one of the few species of bamboo certified for structural use. This 'steel plant' is also a light and flexible material that can be used in low-cost earthquake resistant constructions.
Guadua has traditionally been a highly prized material in construction. In recent years techniques have been developed that allow its use in increasingly complex and demanding structures, such as large roofed surfaces or hanging bridges.
