Bamboo always has been a basic construction material in tropical latitudes. But generally it has been used for inexpensive shacks, stalls, fences, scaffolding and sunscreens.

The goal of the Perlita Project is to show a new path for low energy consumption buildings in Los Angeles and in Southern California through realistic, affordable and reproducible solutions.   The main focus was the energy efficiency. We followed the PassiveHouse standard path, which is the leading international low energy building standard with more than 85,000 buildingsaround the globe in all climate zones, to deliver ahigh level of comfort with very low energy consumption.

Climats chauds : de quoi parle-t-on ?   La zone climatique chaude considérée dans le cadre de ce dossier correspond peu ou prou aux régions du monde dont le climat est, au sens de la classification de Köppen, un climat soit équatorial, soit de mousson, soit de savane, soit désertique chaud, soit semi-aride chaud.   Ce choix de périmètre tient en premier lieu au fait que les régions chaudes concentrent une importante part de la population mondiale :
