Biophilic Bamboo Base (B3)

October 12, 2021 @ 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Biophilic Bamboo Base

Chamila Subasinghe, Richard Manser, Shaun Banner, Michael Phillips, and Curtin University students

Biophilic Bamboo Base (B³) is an architectural performance piece based around the innate relationships between humans and their environment. Paying tribute to an envisioned harmonious relationship between craft, construction and nature, B³ creates a place to experience Bamboo as a natural building material and provides an understanding of its sociocultural importance in the Indian Ocean Rim.

Inspired by an artist-in-residence project, Dr Chamila Subasinghe (Creative Director) will lead architectural students as they design and build their own Bamboo seats for two. B³ will take you on a journey to different sites through John Curtin Gallery’s IOTA21 exhibition – to finally take rest on a site where it can return to its natural elements gracefully.

Free event.

Please register as spaces are limited. Refreshments will be served.
