1 DAY EXPERIENCE BAMBOO TOUR

 

LEARN THE FUNDAMENTALS OF

BAMBOO DESIGN AND

CONSTRUCTION

 

Here in Bali bamboo is redefining the rules of architecture and design. We believe the future must be both beautiful and sustainable. The Bamboo U 1 Day tour offers a complete introduction to bamboo as the sustainable building material of the future. You will learn about its potentials and limitations, visit our processing factory and engage manually with the material to explore the fundamentals of lightweight structural systems. 

 

Time: 11am-5pm

Arrive: 10 minutes before start

Bring: A water bottle, hats and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty.

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

 

The workshop is open to ages 18 + and is not only tailored for people studying or working in the fields of design, architecture, engineering, construction, or carpentry, but for anyone inspired by bamboo and looking for ways to create a better world!


 

 

CURRICULUM OUTLINE

BAMBOO FACTORY TOUR

 

To understand bamboo you have to understand the supply chain. We source our bamboo from local farm collectives in Bali and Java, but all the treatment, processing and furniture production happens right here in our factory. You will receive a uniquely tailored tour of our factory to understand the fundamental steps required for treatment before site delivery and bamboo furniture construction.

RECIPROCAL TOWER WORKSHOP

 

Hyperbolic reciprocal towers are at the heart of the bamboo architectural legacy of Green School and a key signature feature of IBUKU’s designs. During our workshop you can learn about reciprocal systems, lightweight structural principles and engage hands-on with bamboo to make medium scale models.

COURSE OUTCOMES

 

LEARN THE ESSENTIALS OF BAMBOO CONSTRUCTION

As a Bamboo U alumni, you will leave with a set of tools to help you build with bamboo in your own context. We do our best to ensure that everyone receives a rich learning experience that moves them forward in their personal and professional journey with bamboo.  

BECOME A DESIGNER FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

Whether you are an experienced professional, or just taking your first steps in the design field, you will receive insights on how to integrate sustainability into your own practice. Stepping out of your familiar environment, engaging hands on with a natural material, and exchanging with people from different cultures will allow you to step back and look at the bigger picture of our age and time. You may have to unlearn a thing or two to adopt a fresher, greener point of view.

CONNECT WITH AN INTERNATIONAL NETWORK

The main construction site project was the highlight of my experience.  Getting out of my comfort zone while fully immersing in a real world construction project is something I never thought I would do. ​
