Cave Urban is a Sydney based collective dedicated to the study, design and practical application of passive sustainable systems for living. . 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. What began as research in 2010 is now the intersection of practical art and architecture through the use of bamboo
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 organisations such as: 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.
