This week we are running one of the masterclasses for the Crafting Futures Pop-up Studio at Institut Kraftangan Negara organised by British Council Arts Malaysia and Glasgow School of Art, where we are also commissioned to design a ‘pavilion-like’ bamboo structure. The pavilion will act as a framework and a physical symbol of the “Pop-up Studio” intervention by IKN students from the weaving, ceramic, metalwork, woodwork and batik studios. Look up our twitter and Instagram accounts for updates of […]
Its been hectic for our team trying to complete this little structure in a week, but we are extremely pleased with the results. As part of World Urban Forum installations, the pavilion – called the urban brains – will act as an incubator of ideas where visitors are encouraged to express their urban pledges for a better city by writing them down on the coloured bamboo rings.

The process of architecture is complex and at the building site is where ideas start to take shape under the impact of a complex handcrafted process. During the making of a building, the character of the project, its material presence and construction language start to emerge. For us, building construction is a reciprocal process – we feed information to help it take shape but we also learn from it. Our Bamboo Playhouse exhibit for KLAF2017 documents the complex and lengthy […]
Pleased with the efficient ‘mock’ assembly of timber modules at the workshop, the Meranti Pavilion is now ready to be disassembled and shipped to Orlando for the AIA Conference on Architecture 2017. The pavilion will be placed at the expo hall booth 1147: Malaysian Timber Council.
We are pleased to have been selected to design Meranti Pavilion for Malaysian Timber Council at the AIA Conference on Architecture in Orlando, Florida running between April 27th and 29th 2017.

Our bamboo pavilion in Kuala Lumpur has been shortlisted for the LEAF Awards 2016 (Leading Architecture Forum Award 2016) in the Best Sustainable Development category. Winners will be announced at the LEAF Awards Gala Dinner in London on the 14th October 2016.
An update of one of our current projects working in collaboration with SGFA Gallery and SABD Taylor’s University. A workshop was held at the Timber Lab at Taylor’s recently with participating students to test the pavilion’s connection details based on traditional wood working methods.
We are pleased to see the playhouse being used as it was intended for – a flexible space for the public to enjoy. A colouring competition was held there recently, with children using the space in numerous ways. A traditional dance performance also took place at the pavilion, with each dancer occupying an individual deck.
Completed almost 6 years ago in 2009, we are pleased to see that our wind-resilient bamboo classroom prototype in Camarine-Sur, Philippines (the Millennium School Project) is still standing strong and wonderfully adapted by elementary school pupils. See video
