Guerilla Suburbanism is the adaptation, creative reuse, and/or reinvention of rural and suburban realities and conceptions.
Chapter
This article outlines a scientific or iterative research process, designing a proto-architectural molecularly inspired micro-bamboo system, followed by some case-study examples of actualized instantiations of the system at scale. Turning to one of the most effective and strongest molecular structures, carbon, as inspiration for its particularly ver...
