The AA-ITB Bamboo Lab is a research programme of the AA Visiting School and the Institut Teknologi Bandung which explores the fusion of highly advanced computational design software and sustainable natural lightweight materials, to spawn new architectural design methods, develop a new pedagogy, and a portfolio of work which can challenge current policy towards natural materials with variability.

On these courses we teach a design process which synthesises computational design tools and materials with natural variability such as bamboo, informed though first-hand experience of the material and 1:1 scale bamboo construction.

In 2020 these workshops will bridge two continents and will be run as two separate courses, in London and Bandung. This website is being updated in the coming weeks, however in the meantime for information or to sign up for the forthcoming courses please click the following links:
