Tani Malandi High School, Mayotte

Building a school in Mayotte means dealing with many issues on several levels in a very different way than here in Europe – educationally, but also socio-economically and ecologically. The small Comorian island of Mayotte, north of Madagascar, belongs to France and is part of the EU. Of the approximately 180,000 inhabitants, more than half are younger than 20. In view of the strong population growth and the resulting increase in the number of pupils, the outdated temporary multi-purpose secondary school needs to be replaced with new buildings. The architecture should meet the requirements and goals of a state school, but also consider the specific needs of young Mahorans. The adolescents and young adults need a framework that promotes...

bamboo garden house

The Urban Poor Consortium (UPC) Center in Parung, Indonesia acquires a new structure. Two-storied bamboo house is placed next to a pond on the northern part of the plot, surrounded by orchards and bamboo groves. The new facility strengthens the group’s commitment to self-sufficiency and sustainability.  Flooding in Jakarta has worsened in the last few years and raised public concern. Parung is critical to the capital’s hydrology. The bamboo house sits on concrete pedestals. Its small footprint affects minimal impact to the ground surface water, which helps to conserve hydrology in the area. Much needed in the warm-humid climate, the use of bamboo and other natural materials provide indoor comfort without artificial conditi... En savoir plus

Lightweight bamboo architecture reflects the spirit of an open-air theatre

Situated in the mountain landscape of Yangshuo, China, Impression Sanjie Liu is an outdoor theater show. Designed by Illab Architects, the theatre comprises a series of bamboo ‘lanterns’ and a dramatic, nest-like canopy made of woven bamboo. Credit: Arch-Exist Photography Rather than compete with the natural setting of the island site, Illab employed bamboo as the prime design material in order to tie in with existing natural bamboo that covers much of the area that surrounds. Credit: Arch-Exist Photography Between the guest entrance and the main stage, a series of bamboo lanterns draw and guide visitors through the site along the circulation path. The lanterns begin as small structures, increasing in size into large... En savoir plus

Connect / Digital Bamboo Pavilion

This work illustrates the beauty of traditional bamboo weaving craft with the style of flowing space, thus creating a "connection" between the craft in the past and the digital space that represents the future. The weaving of free-form surface creates textures of different density and portraits a flowing space that connects and communicates between the inside and the outside as well as between the upside and the downside.   Bamboo is a sustainable and environmentally friendly material, and it's rarely used in modern society because of its natural defects. This work uses high-temperature processed bamboo materials developed by Taiwan Forestry Bureau and is combined with modern new-style spaces, hoping to re-enter the bamboo materials... En savoir plus

Koh Kong Mangrove Lodging

Koh Kong, a peninsula in the Gulf of Thailand and part of Cambodia’s 450-kilometre coastline, features a number of closely interrelated ecosystems. Expansive mangrove forests carve out small islands, waterways, and ecologically diverse estuaries along the coast, creating a vital and fragile ecosystem which local communities rely on for their livelihoods. In recent decades, economic development in the country, characterized by widespread natural resource exploitation, has devastated Koh Kong’s wildlife and has marginalized local communities from the forests, fisheries, and arable areas which they need to live and thrive. Koh Kong Mangrove Lodging provides an alternative model of development, one that is rooted in the preservatio... En savoir plus

The village of Jengger (or Chicken Comb in Bahasa) is located around seven hundreds meter above sea level. It is home to many coffee farmers.

Bamboo Office

The Bamboo Office is one of the winners of the "1st International Design Building Competition", promoted by the "Chinese Sustainable Design Centre" and the "China New Building Materials Design & Research Institute". Barberio Colella ARC, in collaboration with Angelo Figliola, designed The Bamboo Office, a proposal in which architectural, bioclimatic and environmental aspects converge. The main goal of the design is to connect future employers with nature. This means that people inside the building can constantly perceive the passage of time and the flow of seasons during the year. In this way, who works inside the building or visits it can feel the synergistic relationship between architecture and nature.This object is pursued thanks to... En savoir plus
