Bamboo experiment in progress
In Karjat at the Magic Bus Campus an experiment in bamboois being constructed. This lightweight construction method reduces the amount of non-renewable materials required significantly. The complex geometry with oddly tilting walls and roofs emphasize the temporary character of the village. Additionally each hut is slightly differently shaped exploring the boundaries of the ‘crafted’ and the ‘prefabricated’. Each member is made in a workshop set up on site. The on site workshop allows for flexibility in the length and joinery of each member since assembly is immediate.
