To start the process of creating a place of learning, Green School used design to foster open air classrooms and communal spaces that truly make learning fun. They did this in collaboration with master craftsmen, architects, permaculturists, academics and philosophers. Since then it has become a beacon for education.
Sal Gordon, Green School Bali’s Head of says Learning and Teaching, believes it’s a model of learning that kids respond well to. “No one wants to sit in a box. No one wants to think in a box,” says Sal. To create the structure they called on Balinese practice PT bamboo pure, to work out the technical design aspects of the entirely bamboo structure.“Follow the span of this incredible roofline. The arc of the bamboo. The flow and the interconnectedness, the beauty of the bamboo. Incredible bamboo structures like this are a work of art,” he says.
