Future Design Week: Bamboo U Workshop: Building Reciprocal Towers


Fri 17 May | 05:30 PM
Desa Potato Head Bali

A bamboo reciprocal tower is a foundational building technique in sustainable bamboo construction, which lies at the heart of many of the bamboo structures at Bali’s Green School and Green Village buildings. Led by Bamboo U, a programme founded by John Hardy, Orin Hardy and Maria Farrugia, this workshop will teach guests the structural concepts and design principles behind a reciprocal tower as well as a hands-on demonstration of how to build a scaled-down model. The workshop is 1.5 hours and can be attended on a drop-in basis during the construction process.
