BAMBOO LATTICE VAULT Accra GH
Commission for the opening of contemporary African art Gallery1957 at the ANO Institute in Accra, Ghana. The design brief called for a long canopy to host a lunch-time meal and conversation. However, at the time of installation the question was posed: Can the canopy instead simple create an entry into the ANO courtyard? This was accomplished by means of a lightweight lattice vault woven from split bamboo, installed over 24 hours as a live "building performance."
Part of the bambot design research into future systems of living bio-architectural infrastructures.
