Climatic Architecture: Bamboo as a Modern Building Material
Eleena Jamil in Conversation with Lucy Navarro
In this podcast episode, MARCH student Lucy Navarro speaks with architect Eleena Jamil about her practice. Working within the context of Southeast Asia, her work has been founded on research into specific social and climatic imperatives of each project brief within a broader cultural framework.
Jamil shares with us her vision around the potential of vernacular architecture and sustainable building materials, such as bamboo and timber, in Kuala Lumpur. She also talks about how her firm’s work designing smaller-scale pavilions has provided opportunities for structural and material experimentation.
The conversation took place at Columbia GSAPP on October 14, 2019 prior to Eleena Jamil’s lecture.
