Each morning commences with a slide show seminar by the Australian landscape architect and bamboo designer, Mark Emery. First morning focuses on the history of bamboo architecture drawing on precedents from Europe, Indonesia, Thailand, Colombia, Mexico and Hawaii. With a global context of bamboo building we can begin to analyse the modern era of bamboo architecture.
Following seminars include an overview of Bambooroo Projects, looking at all key aspects from design conceptualization and construction process to reveal methodology applied in tropical bamboo architecture. Bamboo building components are explored in form and expression in domestic details. After seminars we will have time for questions, discussion, and a general ideas exchange and debate.
