Using the workshop “Bamboo Think Tank; from Territory to Detail” as a tool, this paper examines the pedagogical value of immersive Live Projects in design education. The distinctive innovative characteristics of this workshop are the varied group of students working together coming from different international backgrounds with different levels of skills and resources; the organisers being a platform formed by professionals, academics and local community members with an interest in bamboo; and the focus on bamboo considered not just as a material but as a tool to empower all participants involved.
