BamX! is a computationally designed bamboo structure. Raw bamboo slats are connected into deployable cylindrical elements that can be highly compacted for transport and storage. These cylinders are then joined seamlessly at carefully optimized woven nodes, creating a bending-active structural frame that is strong, yet extremely lightweight. The result is a continuous network of geometric curves that delineate a porous interior space. BamX! exemplifies how a symbiosis of refined weaving craft and advanced computational modeling enables fascinating new opportunities for sustainable design in architecture.
