What will we build? A sitting pod using locally sourced bamboo poles in Siming Mountains.
Timeline: 25 June – 2 July 2020
Background: Aksen (China and Indonesia)â€™s summer research and hands-on digital design activities. Due to the pandemic, Matt and I will be spending the three months summer in China this year, not in the UK; so we laid out a busy (and productive) summer with multiple projects.
For this bamboo building exercise, we need approximately 10 volunteers for our first bamboo building simple structure (which I am happy to inform we have reached the number), which entails a trifold research agenda (in computational design, embodied creativity and design pedagogy). Weâ€™ll also get to expand our knowledge with Weishun and he might also bring some students from Zhejiang University. It is a small step in a right direction as I have this in mind for more than a year. Hence I joined the BambooU course and Digital Futures workshop in mixed reality in 2019 to fill in the blanks. This project serves as a datum line for our future research in mixed reality (with Hololens), weâ€™ll get to observe and document on-site problems before addressing them with mixed reality. Weâ€™ll also get to make lots of mistakes along the way.
