PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The creation of 15 bamboo art installations combined traditional techniques and modern analysis with the aim to promote bamboo as a sustainable and alternative construction and design material. Web Structures worked closely with the artists, providing detailed advice on the foundations, mounting details and the incorporation of an adequate structural system within an artistic framework.

Judge's comment:

This art program makes use of bamboo, a traditional material, in a modern way. The engineers have maintained a minimal input to enable the artists to freely express themselves with the bamboo poles. The result is a fascinating mixture of different forms - an exploration of both the artists’ imaginations and of the possibilities that bamboo presents as a construction material.
