Putu in Pita Pavilion

Inspired by "blob architecture", our pavilion, with its' "basket-like" shape, is a result of our attempt to plan and build a structure which would have a natural rounded shape and curves within our rectangular plot.
Compared to architects who design blob structures using 3D softwares, we have decided to achieve our goal by weaving splitted bamboos. Due to their high tendency to bend, throughout the building process we were uncertain regarding the final form of the structure.
Using weaving as our main construction technique, our pavilion no longer had walls or roof, making the whole structure as a one continuous and firm surface.


Buildable Area: 15 sq.m
Orientation : South- West

Building Process

# 1 Foundations

# 2, 3: Placing the PVC pipes & Planting the vertical splitted bamboos

# 4  Pre-Fabricating the arches
