Environmentalists John and Cynthia Hardy wanted to motivate communities to live sustainably and use alternative building technology. Part of that effort was to show people how to Design with Greener and Sustainable materials, specifically bamboo. They established the Green School, and its affiliate: the Meranggi Foundation, which develops plantations of bamboo groves through local rice farmers by providing 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.

Education Complex include classrooms, gym, assembly spaces, faculty housing, offices, cafes and bathrooms. The School teaches Sustainable Technologies side-by-side with subjects taught in typical shools. What the children learn is a lot more than just education. The school also has electricity and internet, but the teachers teach planting and arts – in line with preserving our Environment.

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.
