Just a few years ago, I built Sunflower Tower Cone (2003 Miami) and Sunflower Tower Catenary (2004 Kyoto) based on the Golden Mean Geometry.
They were temporary monumental sculptures.
This attempt is a development of the same principle as a practical architecture.
Although it is the simplest way, I believe this is a prototype which should become an effective bamboo house against earthquake.
We can sophisticate the prototype from now.
If people build a fire here everyday, the smoke makes the bamboo roof structure strong little by little.
It's basic human's life!
I invented and made the "Tri-Lock Door" impromptu.
It has explosion technique like a puzzle.
Beside above activities, I performed musical work called the "Fibonacci Kecak" in the Temple with my friends.
We played in concert with monks of the Temple once. The monks played traditional Buddhist chanting with our Fibonacci Kecak.
It was really exciting!
We promised to do it again the next year.
