6 hours, 1 minute, and 7 days


As part of the design studio “School Project Cambodia”, 34 students of ETH completed in the first week of the new semester a pavillion structure out of bamboo. Here, material properties and construction detailing questions stood in the foreground of the investigation. The students had 6 hours for a small design competition, 1 minute to present their ideas and 7 days to build two of the designs, after the group voted for the ones to be realized. Eike Roswaag, Andrea Klinge and Emmanuel Heringer helped the students with their knowledge and expertice and gave also lectures on school projects the group realized in various locations around the globe.
