Interactive Constructions: Augmented Reality Bamboo Structures Placed in a Mixed Reality (MR) context, the AA Visiting School São Paulo 2022 will rely on Augmented Reality (AR) technology to guide manual fabrication actions for the development of complex geometries built with bamboo. This year, the design and fabrication of these parametric structures will be led by […]

cultivarte arches The CULTIVARTE Arches were developed in a three-day workshop by the architect Jaime Peña. The workshop involved fabricating and rigging ten arches. The project was designed by Jaime Peña Studio using Rhinoceros and Grasshopper. The construction was led by the Cultivarte team, Jaime and the workshop participants. First, a bamboo frame was built […]

The TACUARA Pavilion was part of a workshop that included six online sessions and three in-person sessions. This workshop was conducted in collaboration with Professor Mansur Arevalo and Tacuara Diseño en Bambú. Initially, our course featured informative sessions on bamboo construction led by Uraba Ponzone and Camila Duque from Tacuara Diseño en Bambú. Following that, […]

TACUARA DISEÑO EN BAMBÚ and the architect Luis Santiago Montoya Ramírez designed the CANDELA SPA project. My contribution came during in the construction phase, redesigning the project in Grasshopper to improve the workflow on the construction site and providing hands on support to the prefabrication, assembly, and painting of bamboo parts. This project reflects a […]

belas bamboo The BELAS Bamboo was developed in Architectural Association Visiting School São Paulo in 2022. The workshop relied on Augmented Reality (AR) technology to guide manual fabrication actions for developing complex geometries built with bamboo. Bamboo was chosen as the material because it is a local material that grows fast and is a carbon-sequestering […]

bamboo sphere The BAMBOO Sphere was conducted with the architect Henrique Lattes Borçato as a trial study for the Architectural Association Visiting School in 2020. We recreated a sphere designed by the artist, Alison Grace Martin, in the AA Visiting School 2019 workshop. To build the sphere, we divided it into two identical domes. The […]
