Jules graduated from architecture school in Montreal Canada and decided to take a different path after he graduated. He went to Brazil to see his father, and quickly fell in love with bamboo. Then he moved to Bali to gain the relevant skills and expertise to become a bamboo architect because he believes bamboo is the perfect ambassador to introduce more people to the power of sustainable architecture. This podcast is about his journey to understanding the full capacity of bamboo as a building material.
Jules works for Ibuku and is currently part of the team designing Green School in Tulum, Mexico

Bamboo model making is not only a medium to express ideas but it is also a learning tool for architects.
