USJ Architecture Program Exhibition 2018

Event Date: 30th May — 23rd June, 2018

X-STAX is a bamboo installation that forms the centre-piece of an exhibition of the work of the 2018 bamboo pavilion studio by University of Saint Joseph architecture students.

Taking a tied and rotating bamboo joint as a starting point in defining the interface of construction, a series of installations express a movement of expansion/contraction from ceiling to floor. By applying advanced digital design techniques to vernacular construction materials, the pavilion is intended as a link between Macau’s historical building culture and contemporary cityscape.
