From the architect. Environmentalists and designers John and Cynthia Hardy wanted to motivate communities to live sustainably. Part of that effort was to show people how to build with sustainable materials, namely bamboo. They established the Green School, and its affiliates: the Meranggi Foundation, which develops plantations of bamboo plants through presenting bamboo seedlings to local rice farmers; and PT Bambu, a for-profit design and construction company that promotes the use of bamboo as a primary building material, in an effort to avoid the further depletion of rainforests.

The Green School, a giant laboratory built by PT Bambu, is located on a sustainable campus straddling both sides of the Ayung River in Sibang Kaja, Bali, within a lush jungle with native plants and trees growing alongside sustainable organic gardens. The campus is powered by a number of alternative energy sources, including a bamboo sawdust hot water and cooking system, a hydro-powered vortex generator and solar panels. Campus buildings include classrooms, gym, assembly spaces, faculty housing, offices, cafes and bathrooms. A range of architecturally significant spaces from large multi-storey communal gathering places to much smaller classrooms are a feature of the campus. Local bamboo, grown using sustainable methods, is used in innovative and experimental ways that demonstrate its architectural possibilities. The result is a holistic green community with a strong educational mandate that seeks to inspire students to be more curious, more engaged and more passionate about the environment and the planet.

António João Antunes · February 06, 2011

It's a serious piece of good Architecture at several levels;
At a sustainable level cuz it uses local materials and respects nature around, very organic.
But the thing that I like most is the way the bambu was used to work as a structure, using the "metaphore of the tree" which is a Gothic feature, like Gaudí did in some of his works.
I don't know if PT Bambu did it on purpose.
Anyway, congratulations.
Nice job!

Rawan · October 21, 2010

it's very nice and creative,and it's a green and sustainable design, that encourage others to think more sustainable. Also, it makes the student more interact with nature.

Heba Bella · October 20, 2010

In terms of design and shape, that definitely looks more "green" than most buildings we see nowadays, but I'm not sure weather it would work as a school with the tropical rainy weather of Indonesia,how are they going to stay dry if wind and rain come along together?!

Rawan jamal · October 20, 2010

Innovative! they have used local material which is bamboo and built the whole building! how creative! i think that the aim is also fruitful..as they have mentioned earlier that students get more engaged and passionate about the planet and the environment!
