Kopo House Concrete Prototype

With Yogiaman Tracy Design

Bandung, Indonesia

As part of a Christine Yogiaman's Creative Research grant and continuing exploration of a juxtaposition between traditional Indonesian handcrafts and digital design and fabrication, this research and prototyping project develops a woven bamboo formwork panelized construction system for the exterior wall of a house in Bandung, Indonesia, and develops further the woven-formwork-cast technique from my earlier Jakarta Studio project. The formwork is assembled from locally hand woven bamboo mats and curved CNC-cut plywood.
