Creative building

with Bamboology

Bamboology is an organisation from the UK that is all about making unique bamboo constructions. They combine traditional craftsmanship with organic materials. This way they create incredible structures with a natural design. They reduce their impact on the world by using little or no heavy machinery for the natural materials. Bamboology stands for living, loving and dancing on the earth with bamboo in full colour.

Bamboo Import Europe supplied Bamboology with Java Black bamboo poles for their 'Traveling Temple' project last year. They combined the dark Java with deep red fabrics. This year, they worked together with AKTII on 'The Beacon'. The artwork was commissioned by Climate Art for their 'A vanished sea' artist residency, they wanted an installation on the beach of Rye Harbour Nature Reserve. For this project Bamboology used our strong Guadua poles, which harmonise beautifully with the colours of the beach and the fabrics.

The Beacon is a large installation on the pebble beach of Rye Harbour Nature Reserve. It is a unique structure. Innovative techniques are used in the fabric tensioning. This allowed them to do more with less. It is a feat of great architectural potential.

There is great attention to detail. The Beacon symbolises a lighthouse that looks out for the vulnerable ships at sea. The yellow fabric is inspired by a local flower, Yellow Horned Poppy, which grows in Rye Harbour. The Beacon is a symbol of hope and reunion. It reinforces this by providing space for events, for the first time since the lockdown.

The Beacon is designed and built by Bamboology, with technology from AKTII. On commission from Climate Art for the 'Vanished at Sea' artist residency. With support from: Sussex Wild Life Trust, Arts Council England, and Bridge Point Rye.

The Beacon can be hired in the UK, but Bamboology is also available for personal bamboo designs. You can contact them at info@jrwarchitecturaldesigns.co.uk or visit their website www.bamboology.co.uk You can use them here Find them on Instagram.
