BAMBUILD at Reform
QUT School of Design Student Collective “The Dub” will be continuing their yearly Bambuild series, with their fifth project taking on new sites at QUT’s Kelvin Grove Campus. The Dub’s project team will be designing & installing a temporary bamboo pavilion that aims to both highlight the structural applications of bamboo and showcase current student work to the greater design and public communities. The Dub are interested in developing skills and interest in traditional passive construction techniques that allow for the reuse of natural materials post these showcase installation.
The Dub’s project team, headed by Steve Szell, Marissa Lindquist and Hunter Eccleston, will be constructing again with bamboo for the latest iteration of the Bambuild. Project winners “Natalia Salgues and Jason Bell” will have their work, “Swept Up” come to life on the lawns of QUT’s Kelvin Grove Campus. Their proposal will integrate design elements from the second-and third-place proposals and utilise woven bamboo to produce the entrancing form of their design.
