Rattan Tunnel at Bacanalia by Natalia Ortega Gámez and Jose Thén
This woven rattan tunnel by Dominican designers Natalia Ortega Gámez and Jose Thén offered a secluded hangout at Caribbean music festival Bacanalia (+ movie).
Gámez and Thén worked with a group of local artisans to build the temporary tunnels at the Bacanalia festival site in Santo Domingo.
Using a traditional basket-weaving technique, the team wound the rattan over a staggered series of curved metal frames, creating two structures that wound across the grass.
Installation took around six weeks and was completed by the addition of a wooden floor, low-level lighting and a few plants.
Other unusual structures and pavilions we've featured from music festivals include a dome of colour-changing balls at Coachella in California and an installation of plywood stars at Burning Man festival in Nevada.
Other architecture projects we've featured from the Dominican Republic include a house based on Euclidean mathematics and a shop with stripes of light across its facade.
