Bamboo Micro-library Completed

On 19th September 2018, Director-General of UNESCO Audrey Azoulay named Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia as the World Book Capital for the year 2020. In conjunction with this, a series of micro-libraries were built all over the city. The Bamboo library located within the grounds of Perdana Botanical Gardens was designed by us as part of the initiative.

Bamboo Terrace Homes

The proposal explores the potential of using bamboo to build permanent and comfortable contemporary homes in urban and suburban areas. It references typical terrace houses built across Malaysia characteristic of 22 feet wide frontages that overlooks out to the street. The underlying idea is change the perception of bamboo into a modern and everyday construction material just like bricks, steel or concrete. Read about the project on designboom
