Making Architecture with Bamboo by Eleena Jamil
The talk revolves around an approach in architecture that combines natural local resources – bamboo – in contemporary construction strategies. Discussion will focus around how the use of this local sustainable material drives the architectural concepts to create engaging and meaningful structures. A series of projects, built and unbuilt, will be presented as case studies
to explain concepts and ideas.
ELEENA JAMIL trained at the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff University in United Kingdom. After a short working stint, she joined the architecture faculty at Cardiff as a teaching assistant while completing her MPhil and PhD postgraduate research. Eleena set up her own architectural practice in Kuala Lumpur in 2005 and it has since been growing steadily with an expanding portfolio of work that has won international accolades. Working within the context of South-east Asia and beyond, her work has been founded on research into specific social and climatic imperatives of each brief within a broader cultural framework.
