June 16-23 will be a great week for Cebu as we celebrate the very first Cebu Design Week!
Within that week there will be different events around the city featuring Cebu’s innate design-sensibility, and aiming to gather everyone from the creative sector to create, collaborate and cultivate.
In line with this, we will be having the ekoSHARE Bamboo Series - 9th Edition. This edition is very special as we run the classic Bamboo 101 & 102 with Bamboo Buildathon and Bamboo Carving. For the past 8 editions, ECCP’s ekoSHARE Bamboo Series has been attended by various bamboo enthusiasts, including architects, engineers, designers, entrepreneurs and students.

ARCHITECT LUKAS ZOLLINGER
Lukas Zollinger, born 1983 in Winterthur, Switzerland, has a Bachelor of Arts ZFH in Architecture degree.
Zollinger had started to work with bamboo in 2014 and has succumbed to the miracle grass. His first bamboo project “kapal bambu“, a 1000 squaremeters centre for the Eco-Lodge Resort in Bukit Lawang, Sumatra, Indonesia, opened its gates in 2015. The second lightweight constructions with bamboo, designed by Zollinger is a 30 meter bamboo bridge in Sumatra, Indonesia, finished by end of 2017. The usage of this bridge is for pedestrians and cars which visit the Orangutan Haven park, for which he has also developed a 48 hectares master plan.
Zollinger is living now part time in the Philippines and is pushing the wonder grass here with light and unique designed constructions.
