Design + Program

DESIGN + PROGRAM

MAIN TOPICS :: 

BAMBOO TAXONOMY: material definition and characteristics.

BAMBOO VALUE CHAIN: Planting, propagation and potentials >> Treatment techniques and transformations

BAMBOO ARCHITECTURE: Architecture and infrastructure >> Traditional, Experimental and contemporary architecture/engineering with bamboo

OTHER BAMBOO CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES: Bahareque (Waddle and daub)+ material exploration

PROGRAMATIC NEEDS ::

The design consists of a 30 square meter structure to serve as a kiosk, with the following elements and program:

  • space for relaxation and hammock
  • built-in work table
  • built-in indoor or outdoor seating
  • green wall” (using bamboo pots- part of art and crafts)
  • wind block
  • roof with operable openings
  • overhang/overlook
  • chimeney
