Symphony Of The Bamboos Bamboo Workshop And Lecture By Ar. Neelam Manjunath At Palazzo Mora Venice Italy On 25th November 2016


Date: November 25, 2016 Organizer: Venice Biennale, Venice, Italy

In the wake of Aravena, Pritzker award winner and curator of Venice Biennale 2016, lobbying for Bamboo and Mud at the Habitat III summit , our International Bamboo Workshop assumed a lot of importance. This was the only workshop on Bamboo at the Biennale!

We at Manasaram, have close to 30 years of experience in the field of Sustainable Architecture and Development.  Bamboo and later Mud was included in our palette of natural materials when a unique opportunity struck us , and the rest as they say is history !

It’s been close to 2 decades since and we have never looked back.

The workshop was accompanied by a lecture and a short screening by Ar. Neelam Manjunath. People from all over the world came along to learn about bamboo sticks and create various models and symphonies.
