To meet the low-carbon demands and promote sustainable development in structural engineering, bio-based buildings and structures, which include timber structures, bamboo structures, and even bio-based hybrid structures, are attracting more and more attention. With the rapid development of highrise and large-span bio-based structures, the research, fabrication, design, and construction in these sorts of structures meet a major challenge. Innovative techniques have been carried out for a long time.
This Special Issue—Timber, Bamboo and Hybrid Structures—will cover, but is not limited to, research topics and works focused on the following aspects:
- Timber structures;
- Bamboo structures;
- Timber–concrete composite structures;
- Bamboo–concrete composite structures;
- Hybrid steel-timber structures;
- FRP/steel-reinforced structural timber/bamboo elements;
- Mixed-species engineered wood elements;
- Hybrid joints for bio-based structures.
All the above aspects are strongly represented at present.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Buildings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
