Model

Structural Design:

The way the bamboo is worked, folded, and tied gives the installation its particular shape, with a high aesthetic impact and great solidity, without using nails.

It is a temporary bamboo building located in the Venetian Arsenal, with a floor plan shape that fits in a rectangle of 14.30 x 27.50 m, reaching a maximum height of 6 m. The stalactite-like structure is made up of a series of modules with a rhombic covering, whose load-bearing structure is made up of two bamboo struts that are locked in place on a steel plate, where two tubular elements are welded.

Wind is the governing action affecting the structure. The action was calculated assuming a partially opaque surface, as the "Bamboo Stalactite" is composed of a lattice consisting of bamboo members. Concrete ballasts hold back the wind's vertical and horizontal action. Since the structure has no foundation, the supports on the ground are defined as non-reactive to tension.
