As the zero point of the radial city development of Kuching, the courtyard provides a profound meaning to the creation of this pavilion design, geographically or metaphorically. The design sees an undulating landscape as the extended ripples of the fountain, with the cylindrically arrayed bamboo frames supporting the canopy made out of palm leaves with varied heights. The pavilion-making project is a cross disciplinary collaboration between Architect Wendy Teo (UK ARB/RIBA) and choreographers of Primates, local craftsmen and network of suppliers in Kuching.
If you are interested in Bamboo pavilion construction, then you are welcomed to join the participatory building model. From 15th of May until 20th of June, the building workshop will be organized every day to introduce you on the process of constructing this pavillion. In order for this process to be explanatory, booklets will be issued. Together with our educational partner Rover Crew of 5th Kuching City Scout group, Wendy Teo (UK Architect ARB/RIBA) from Borneo Laboratory will guide you through the building process. The joining time is flexible, however we hope the interested party could inform us in advance so materials and snacks can be prepared ahead. Material, tools and instruments will be provided. And yes, it is for free! Building Date: 15th May - 20th JuneWorkshop Hour: 9:00AM - 12:30PM, 5:00PM - 10:00PM to avoid the direct sunlightLocation: The Courtyard of the Old Court House, Kuching
