T.Pavani from Andhra Pradesh
I, T.Pavani from Andhra Pradesh, graduated architecture recently and came to Auroville to explore more about natural and sustainable materials, in which I choose Bamboo because I am interested and it is strong, flexible, durable and a different material to experiment construction.
Finally landed in Auroville Bamboo centre to volunteer for 3 months, which I expected is tough and difficult but later I liked it that I can’t leave the place. During my college days I am not experienced with tools and equipments but after these 3 months I think I can make my own house and furniture.
I have been working on Bamboo University, a project completely with Bamboo; Geodesic dome for JOI community in Auroville; Bamboo hut in Ariyur and furniture. It a nice place to learn and experience hands-on with bamboo.
