Given this scenario, together with Indigenous Cooperatives, Comunal: Taller de Arquitectura decided to make a second housing exercise that avoid using local bamboo species as structural elements. This second exercise preserves the modular and prefabricated building system based on panels made with bamboo oldhamii. The construction system uses only three elements (two trusses and a panel with its variants); these elements are pre-fabricated and assembled once the structural frames have been finished, which significantly reduces site construction time. Also, the approximate assembly time is one week, reducing labor costs for a low budget project.
