Bamboo Stalactite | VTN Architects

“Bamboo Stalactite is a Freespace, a community space, shared equally by everyone.”

Because of this community sense, free space has to be a space that is easy to realize. This is characterized by simplicity in structure and low production costs.

As a community space, this structure can be duplicated in Venice, but also in other urban and rural areas. It can be transported easily and can therefore be a space in a museum, a pavilion for a school or just a space free and open to all in some countryside.

The pavilion comprises 11 modules, each one is shaped by the combination of 2 hyperbolic shell structures. Structural beams for the pavilion had already been prepared in Vietnam.

Bamboo, with its distinctive flexibility structurally speaking, allowed the architects to realize this project with limited resources and limited time. This flexibility extends beyond structures. Bamboo helps to create a space, rich in its connection with the beauty of nature, with the sun, the wind and the sea. For that reason, this bamboo space easily becomes the city’s landmark despite its small size.
