Architecture BRIO’s Staff Dormitory for Magic Bus has been selected as a winning entry in the global 20+10+X World Architecture Community Awards. Winners were selected by World Architecture Honorary Members, together with twenty other projects from across the world. The aim of the WA Community Awards is to highlight and publish remarkable projects. Novelty, originality and creativity in design that reflect and inspire a commitment to the art of architecture are the major criteria.
The project combines natural and local materials such as bamboo with wood, concrete and steel. Designed with the help of engineer Vilas Gore of GeoScience Services, the building’s structural system decreases its load on the bamboo poles.
