In 2017, Building Trust will host an international Bamboo Festival located in the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh. We are looking for innovative and creative designs for the central pavilion of the festival.
The Camboo Bamboo Landmark Design Challenge is to propose a central temporary structure which will act as a showcase for the material and as a gathering space for events throughout the festival. We want the most creative, forward thinking ideas which push the already amazing portfolio of bamboo projects that are out there. We aim to build the winning design and capture the minds of the public, overcoming the widespread stigma that bamboo is a poor material and firmly set Cambodia as a place where modern architecture and traditional building materials can combine.
