Update 4: Completed Bamboo Pod 2

A gif each day’s milestones as follows:

18-23 July 2020.

Danshan Chishui, Yuyao, Zhejiang, China.

Sponsored by Aksen (China and Indonesia), in collaboration with Weishun Xu from Zhejiang University.

Our keen designers and makers are:

Jiang Yating
Chen Wu
Sun Xintian
Chuchu Qi
Yang Ruitong
Shen Jingli
Haiqing Yang
Xia Miaojun*
Feng Liyang
Li Ningyuan*
Fan Zeran

Facilitated by 3 lecturers:

Weishun Xu- Zhejiang University, Matt Wallwork- University of Nottingham Ningbo China and Mia A. Tedjosaputro- Ningbo University.

 

Computationally designed by ZHU team and crafted manually by the keen makers. We are framing the research questions on potentials of mixed reality in architecture to aid design and construction processes. Derived from the observations of two bamboo pods construction (for first pod, click here), the aim is to contribute on the area of computational bamboo architecture.

Hololens 2

One of this year’s highlight, managed to get hold of Hololens 2 headset for our mixed reality research. I have mapped up the research agenda in computational bamboo architecture for the last year or so and Rafael and myself have been working on the emulator since the beginning of this year. Excited!

Update 2: Completed Bamboo Pod 1

Just a quick update on the bamboo sitting pod #1, our trial exercise. Four of us (Zheng, Maxine, Matt and I) completed it in two days despite the heavy downpour. It was completed faster than we planned. The structure stays there as the owner would like to keep it (we planned to take it down straightaway), hence temporary structure support stays for redundancy.

Before we launch the second construction this month (July 18th), here is a gif of the first pod encapsulating the process. And some paps of the final pod.

Sponsored by Aksen (China and Indonesia).

First bamboo architecture project in Siming Mountains

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)’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). We’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), we’ll get to observe and document on-site problems before addressing them with mixed reality. We’ll also get to make lots of mistakes along the way.

Please get in touch for the T&C. Follow our progress and learnt lessons along the way via my IG’s stories.
