Plywood strips for Arches



This element is composed by glued plywood strips in a shape like canes. It is thougth to resolve dome and vaults. In many countires it is comon to build using all kind of canes or bamboo. Each cane work no exactly like one an other, and a big problem are conections between vertical and horizontal canes, because are tigth with wire or threads. When canes abosorb or desorb humiddity tis dimensions changes, so concetion move and desestibilizate. That are some of the problem I would like to solution using a standar plywood strip. Using the gluelam technique I can create curve strips as the canes are, but in this case all with the same shape, leting it me to do an excellent work. Another advantaje, is that conection will be able to be perfect, because it will be possible to glue and screw them, geting for that a perfect union between vertical and horizontal elements.

Ecological values

By using natural canes or bamboo, many garbage remains are producing. But in that case that I am presenting, using strips of plywood, it will be possible to reduce the leftovers. Also, if someone sells this product, it will be possible to build more natural structures within reach of more people.
