CGBMT Studio Cum Workshop Bangalore


Location: CGBMT Campus, Aditigreenscapes, Bangalore Client: CGBMT Bangalore

The studio cum workshop, designed for holding CGBMT class, workshops, etc. included many innovative techniques. The bamboo trusses are tapering, unlike conventional ones. Tree-like bunched bamboo columns are held in place with ropes, avoiding the use of bolts. The roof, a corrugated- curve structure was achieved with the use of simple bamboo splits. The entire roof was woven on the ground and erected in place by casual labourers and trainees from Manasaram Architects, demonstrating how high-end structures can be realized with simple technology.
