Limited by the non-standard nature of bamboo, bamboo has always been regarded as a traditional, restrictive, and time-consuming building material. Therefore, there is an urgent need for an enhanced parametric design system and digital construction workflow to upgrade the traditional bamboo construction process. In this project, through the analysis of the bamboo pavilion ” The Green Weaved Corridor ” under the traditional construction method, five main factors restricting the development of bamboo architecture are obtained: difficult positioning of supporting structure, low efficiency of material selection and matching, the manual processing of materials, non-standard node and low utilization rate of non-standard waste materials. Then, through case analysis, we proposed the technical means to improve these factors and put forward a multi-technology collaborative digital construction workflow. The workflow will comprise augmented reality, 3D scanning, robot-aided construction, 3D printing, and design rules. Moreover, by building parametric benches, we used augmented reality technology and new design rules to verify multi-technology collaborative fabrication workflow possibilities and effectiveness. This project wants to explore a parametric design method based on bamboo material characteristics and multi-technology collaborative workflow, to improve the utilization rate of non-standard bamboo components in parametric design.
