Bamboo & you

Silver Lake’s Materials & Applications art space has put out a call for volunteers to design and build their next outdoor project using bamboo. Unlike previous projects, this one won’t be located in the courtyard of their Silver Lake Boulevard office. Instead, it will be built in Barnsdall Art Park as part of an exhibit at the Los Angeles Municipal Gallery.

“So far our starting parameter is the use of
bamboo as a tensioning element. What is left to be decided is the design and medium to connect the bamboo. The overall goal is to design modular units to ultimately grow the structure.”

The project – details here – needs to be designed and built in place by January 23 in time for the opening reception later in the month.
