Biennale d’Architettura 2016 – Ephemeral Urbanism: Cities in Constant Flux
Layout and installation of a bamboo structure for the project Ephemeral Urbanism: Cities in Constant Flux by Rahul Mehrotra and Felipe Vera in the edition REPORTING FROM THE FRONT at the Biennale d’Architettura 2016 in Venice.
The assembly is made up of an orthogonal framework that surrounds the entire installation with BMØ6 Moso Bamboo canes tied together to recreate the type of constructions made at the Kumbh Mela Festival.
We also designed and assembled the pavilion’s furniture: 2 benches made up of TamVong BTVØ3 canes and 12 bamboo-lined plinths, always keeping the premise of rope and reed joints as a fundamental element.
For the construction of the structure we moved 3 people and they were used:
1.150 m. linear of Moso Bamboo BMØ6
830 ml TamVong BTVØ3 Bamboo
̴ 3.100 ml of Hemp rope
̴ 280 m2 of fabric
