Bamboo Building Bash with Antoon Versteegde - First Day of the "Bamboo Building Bash", lead by bamboo artist Antoon Versteegde. Robert Keil


The workshop is built up around a wooden bike track (that some of you might know from our 'Sur Place' exhibition). This track, commissioned by Mediamatic, was designed by DUS Architects. The track will serve as the 'city-ring'. Around it we'll create an urban bamboo landscape. Every hour you'll see the structure grow, until it's a massive bamboo-constructed city. Antoon Versteegde is known for his immense installations constructed in the public space. DUS Architects specialize in social architecture.
