Design in the Borderlands: Manitoba Hydro Place

Manitoba Hydro Place is among the most energy-efficient office towers in North America and located in one of its most challenging climates. A climatically-responsive approach was taken to develop the energy concept which is key to the building’s performance. This approach requires designers to work outside of the rigid boundaries of their specific expertise and develop site-specific, integrated solutions.

Bamboo in the Urban Environment

This meeting is open to all NOCMAT delegates.

This is the inaugural meeting of the recently-initiated Bamboo in the Urban Environment research consortium. The focus of this meeting is in developing and coordinating international research collaborations, primarily in support of ISO standardisation efforts for bamboo materials.

The University of Pittsburgh-led consortium was awarded one of 14 Global Innovation Initiative Awards. This program, funded by the U.S. Department of State and the UK British Council, fosters multilateral research collaboration with higher education institutions in Brazil, China, India and Indonesia.

With partners at Coventry University (UK), the team includes collaborators at Bogor Agricultural University (Indonesia), the Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi (India), the International Network for Bamboo and Rattan (China) and industry partners in the US and UK.
