Bamboo Resin Joint
A moment-resisting joint for bamboo was developed by notching and intersecting two members and by then filling the resulting inner x-shaped chamber with epoxy resin. The joint allowed the construction within a distorted grid. Architectural and structural requirements were mediated by an agent-based simulation that controlled the placement of the robotically cut bamboo segments within the voxel grid. The project is the result of the AA Visiting School Vienna at the Angewandte.
