MOSO Africa invites you to join their cpd presentation:
Engineered bamboo as the new Architectural Material:
Sustainability & Innovation
The presentation will be given by Andy Paige. An engineer by trade, he’ll be speaking about how the advances in the manufacturing of engineered bamboo products mean that bamboo is now a viable, durable and a sustainable alternative for virtually any application where timber products would normally be used.
Bamboo products are hard, stable and extremely versatile in their application. In addition to their natural beauty, they have significant durability and sustainability benefits compared to other products.

Lessons from place:
Architecture as agency for spatial transformation
Prof. Yashaen Luckan raises a critical conversation about the potentiality of architectural thinking and making in the evolution of cities, specifically related to resilience and spatial transformation.
He refers to his previous works on the Grey Street precinct, in Durban, as a case study to analyse the various pressures - legislative, and socio-spatial - that led to places of incidental urban revitalisation and an anticolonial counter-position facilitated by the built form and architecture.
His presentation concludes with a critical discussion on agency and architecture in urban revitalisation and progressive spatial transformation.
