FUFUZELA are free modular mobile #BAMBOTS (bamboo micro-infrastructure) that interoperate at the scale between furniture and architecture. Designed for self-assembly, fufuzela are—like deer and sheep—irregular plurals that are simultaneously one and many. In a world at war with itself, how can we accommodate the multiplicity of a multicultural multiverse? Fufuzela create scaffolding for shared experience: By embodying material ecologies of symbiosis, fufuzela enable new forms of stigmergic interspecies interaction with the city and one another.
FUFUZELA are a freely accessible open-source architecture for celebrating diversity (the design code for fabrication and assembly shall be disseminated online via free digital blueprints), enabling people to make them together, in their own communities, to (re)connect as human beings. Installed as a dynamic and reconfigurable green armature for rewilding the city, BAMBOT: FUFUZELA transforms open space into an experiential bio-design lab that maps propagations of the present and empowers people to plant seeds for the future
