Ancestral craftsmanship meets modern construction techniques

published in sb magazine 1/2022


The design solution is an unprecedented structure which is an incredible piece of bamboo architecture. The Arc is the newest gymnasium building on campus at the world-renowned Green School in Bali, Indonesia. IBUKU has pioneered a new design vocabulary, making its own rules along the way.

The school has a 14-year history of breaking boundaries and expanding horizons. The Arc is the newest benchmark in that history, raising the bar for sustainable education. The first building of its kind ever made, The Arc at Green School is built from a series of intersecting 14 m tall bamboo arches spanning 19 m, interconnected by anticlastic gridshells which derive their strength from curving in two opposite directions.
