Re-Thinking Bamboo: Research and Xploration

Speaker: Andry Winyowijatnoko
Date: 10 March 2018
Time: 2:15pm – 5:30pm
Venue: Dewan Presiden, Level 2, PAM Centre, Jalan Tandok, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur

Speakers' Biography

Dr.-Ing. Andry Widyowijatnoko is an Architect, Lecturer and Researcher at the Building Technology Research Group, School of Architecture, Planning and Policy Development, Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia. He started working with bamboo in 1999 in developing plastered bamboo construction for low cost housing. His invention, plastered bamboo construction system, had been applied in many places in Indonesia. In 2006 he was sponsored by Environmental Bamboo Foundation to travel to Colombia to learn about bamboo constructions for about three months. After this journey, he changed his approach of promoting bamboo by designing high-end building to increase its value. One of his achievements in design was the award winning Great Hall OBI, an oval building with spans of 20m to 30m made entirely of bamboo.

He gained his doctoral degree from the Chair of Structures and Structural Design, Faculty of Architecture, RWTH Aachen, Germany in 2012. Published in Germany, his dissertation ‘Traditional and Innovative Joints in Bamboo Construction’ started with the classification of bamboo construction, followed by the classification of bamboo joints, and then ended by proposing customized lashing-based bamboo joints with very high tensile strength. The joints was called bamboo radial compression joint or barcom joint, with multiknots. The average strength of the last joint with four knots was 76.91 kN, but still had potency to be increased. The patented barcom joint was applied for the improvement of the famous Three Mountain Building in Bali.

Still working with bamboo design and build, he tries to widen the application of bamboo for advanced structure, such as tensegrity, reciprocal, tensile as well as space structures, combined with new design approach such as parametric design. He invented a new structural system so called ‘rection: reciprocal tension’, a combination of tensegrity and reciprocal frames. In promoting new ways of constructing bamboos, he’s conducted many lectures and hands-on workshops all over the globe such as Indonesia, Germany, Netherland, Belgium, Phillipines, Korea, Colombia, Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand, Australia and China. All of his activities in bamboo construction were marked under the brand name of bambuLoka.
