Two architect-builders cum academics from Curtin University and Bangkok University came together to involve students and community on a collaborative design-build project entitled "Beautiful Bamboo Base (B3): a Local Resiliency Building (LRB) project". B3 targeted providing critical infrastructure needed for female empowerment through employment and education for a minority Karen community on the Thailand-Myanmar border. This 10 weeks intensive LRB task involved breaking language (English, Thai, Karen) and cultural barriers among three groups through Bamboo design. We communicated non-verbal through sketches, models, drawings and prototypes.
