Bamboo and Keeth Roof Workshop


Keeth roofing is a traditional, natural roofing material, prevalent in vernacular regions of South India. The participants will learn this deep-rooted traditional, and sustainable technique of keeth roofing in the Keeth Roof Workshop.

Being made out of bamboo, the structure is both light and economical. Once retracted, it easily fits into a shipping container. Could it be the ideal solution for temporary shelter victims of natural disasters in tropical regions?
