Computational bamboo installation
The computational bamboo installation was built in July 2018 as part of the IAAC Global Summer School in Quito, Ecuador. The structure is constructed from bending-active bamboo laths and rods and will be showcased for 3 months at the Museum of Interactive Science in Quito. The workshop, which resulted in this demonstrator, combined natural local traditional building materials with new computational methods for design combined with traditional fabrication. The workshop was led by two ITKE researchers, Evy Slabbinck and Seiichi Suzuki.
