Cave Urban is a Sydney based international collective dedicated to the study, design and practical application of passive sustainable systems for living. What began as research in 2010 has developed into the intersection of art and architecture through the use of bamboo. Key areas of interest include sustainable house design, renewable energy systems, resource recycling and the use of bamboo as a low-energy, renewable structural building material.

Cave Urban’s projects involve the participation of the local community, universities and artists, fostering cross cultural exchange and collaboration with artists such as Wang Wen-Chih (Taiwan), Georges Cuvillier (Belgium), Amir Rabik (Indonesia), Carolina Pinto (Chile) and Markus Tatton (Australia).  Cave Urban has partnerships with many organisations including; Opera Australia, MONA, Clemenger, University of Tasmania, UNSW, Sydney City Council, Royal Botanical Gardens, Australian National Botanical Gardens, Brisbane City Council and the Woodford Folk Festival.

Permaculture Northern Beaches will be hosting one of the co-founders of Cave Urban at our monthly meeting. Please come along and join us to learn how bamboo can be utilised to create beautiful and sustainable structures.

We will have a swap table to share the abundance from your garden and home, such as small potted plants, crops, and books. There will also be organic teas and coffee available, please bring a plate of food to share. All welcome, entry is by donation for hall hire costs.
