Green School in Bali

All-Bamboo Ecological Architecture in Bali

Green School is a private school located in central Bali that features an ecologically-sustainable design throughout. All of the school’s building structures are made up of locally grown, treated and manufactured bamboo. The brainchild of Bali-based jewellery designer John Hardy, the school showcases over 70 large bamboo structures, including a bridge over the Ayung River valley connecting the school to its main entrance.

Tours are available enabling you to see from up close the massive structures, as well as learn about the school’s sustainability projects. These include renewable energy using a hydroelectric vortex generator and solar cells at specific points around the campus. The main structure, nicknamed ‘The Heart of the School’, serves as a centrepiece with its swirling rooftop design over a massive 60-metre long build on bamboo stilts.
