Abstract: At the heart of the dissertation lies the subject of the potential of bamboo to be a primary material of construction in North East India. It sets out to understand the current state of bamboo construction in the region and intends to find about possible solution to the existing problems which are a hindrance to bamboo being the primary material of construction in the region. Bamboo is available in plenty in the north eastern province of India, but inspite of all its advantages it is very little used in the main construction industry. The hypothesis was formulated by an understanding of the scenario of bamboo based construction in the region, the current trend of the market and a study of existing projects of the area. Further readings, case studies , discussion and interview with local architects, including a short field trip, led to a detailed conclusion as to possible measures needed to establish the hypothesis and eliminate the hindrances in the way. The dissertation critically understands the situation prevalent in the region in terms of all aspects relating to bamboo based construction from industrialization, customization, joinery to the social mindset of the people, in its limited scope and formulate the idea that with proper architectural intervention a new beginning to the bamboo industry in the region is possible.
