It was an one month workshop at Bauhaus University in Germany, which focused on bamboo material experiments and fast prototyping. The characteristic of bamboo in different status, and mixing of different materials were taken into consideration.
We divided the work flow into 4 steps: analysis of bamboo fiber, test of bamboo fiber, brainstrom & decision making and prototype making. Firstly, based on the fomer test and experience, we made a conclusion of bamboo fiber's characteristic, especially the advantage; then, we spent 2 weeks to did lots kinds of material tests; based on this, we mada a composite evaluation of all the test matierial and choose the final material we would use and discussed the design direction; at last we make our prototype under the guidence of teachers in the workshop.
