Zhejiang University Summer 2021
Leslie Lok and Weishun Xu
The research investigates novel sustainable building practices by coupling augmented reality (AR) technologies with bamboo as a building material. Design and construction processes aided by augmented/mixed-reality protocols can be deployed by local labor and communities within a low-tech setting. Thus, radically transforming how we can urbanize and construct our future urban and rural environments and creating much-needed innovations in mass-customized construction methods.
