Today we visited a district on the southern edge of Bogota City called Soacha. With thanks to our collaborator Dr. Hector Archilla from Amphibia Group Ltd, a tour around a Guadua (Bamboo) distribution centre was set-up with Wilson Aristizabal, the CEO of Arme Ideas en Guadua Ltda. The experience allowed us to see the processes involved during the manufacturing stages. Our aim is to incorporate the material into our unit design, and explore its potential.
The day continued with Andres Cabal from Solar Decathlon Uniandes 2015: Más Huerto, Más Casa., which we would like to thank for introducing us to Bogota, followed by the end of our visit to Colombia and a warm welcome back to London.
