At their core, they are also made to communicate the values and ideals of nations as welcoming structures and sustainable civic spaces. Today, modern embassy projects are made to meet rigorous security standards while embracing local culture and conditions.

From the last few years, the engineer has exhaustively studied about bamboo, its structural properties and its most diverse potential.
