Food Trip Market
       
     
Food Trip Market

As part of a public-private initiative to boost food tourism on the island of Negros Oriental in the Philippines, the Food Trip market structure gives the center of Valencia a distinctly local identity.

Philippines Bamboo Workshop
       
     
Philippines Bamboo Workshop

The first phase of the market was constructed during the Philippines Bamboo Workshop, a four-week study-abroad program that introduces bamboo construction as a contemporary building craft and as a medium for connecting architecture students studying at the University of Washington in the US and Foundation University in the Philippines.

 

Learning from the Locals
       
     
Learning from the Locals

In preparation for construction, the students completed a series of workshops at Bambus Collabo, a 2.3-hectare bamboo farm and work collective, which hosts a bamboo nursery and studio for producing furniture and other handicrafts made from the plant. There, students learned about bamboo growth, care and harvesting from craftsmen, who also demonstrated joinery and lashing techniques.

Design Collaboration

Teams, consisting of students from both universities, developed proposals for the market structure. The teams presented their proposals to city officials and the market vendors, and a preferred scheme was selected from the group.

Bamboo Basket
       
     
Bamboo Basket

The ‘Bamboo Basket’ scheme was selected for its practicality as well as its contemporary take on traditional bamboo construction. In response to interviews with the food vendors, the students proposed a continuous roof structure requiring a minimum number of vertical supports. The structure consists of five 7.6 by 6.7 meter (25 by 22 foot) bays, constructed from spliced bamboo poles covered with split bamboo lath and nipa palm leaf thatching.

Market Construction
