Green Village Tour just across the river from Green School. We will take you on an informative walk through the bamboo factory where the architecture of the Green School campus was conceptualized and constructed. The tour continues on to Green Village, where you’ll experience a community of one-of-a-kind bespoke bamboo homes.
What to explore at The Green Village?
Visit PT Bamboo Pure, the headquarters of our factory, workshop, and design space. Watch the process as bamboo gets treated, cut and crafted into the furniture.
Visit this community of unconventional homes clustered along the slopes of Bali’s beautiful Ayung River. See spectacular houses constructed entirely by hand of locally sourced bamboo, rising up to six floors.
Explore the imaginative campus of Green School with its fifty plus bamboo structures, surrounded by forest and rice fields. Learn about their use of alternative energy sources and their focus on creativity and culture. The walk around Green School will be an adventure. We are located on a steep ravine, so be prepared with the right walking shoes or sandals as we will be walking on rocks, and going up and down many steps. We don’t recommend bringing heavy backpacks or luggage. We suggest wearing light clothes and bringing an umbrella or raincoat, especially during the rainy season.
Learn how to make a bamboo architectural model in this one-of-a-kind course taught at the bamboo factory. The design-build team at Ibuku is unique to the world in its process of creating scaled structural models made of hand-whittled bamboo sticks. The models are replicated in 3D lines on the computer for engineers to study before a project is finalized. Take an impressive skill away from Bali with you, and come learn this unique process in a 2-hour modeling class
JOINERY TECHNIQUES CLASS
The techniques for connecting bamboo to bamboo in the incredible structures of the Green School campus and Green village community have redefined sustainable architecture worldwide. By reinventing joinery techniques, the design-build team at Ibuku is also stretching the rules and standards of what a building can look like. Learn how to be a part of this sustainable design revolution through this 2-hour bamboo joinery workshop.
The tradition of making and playing the Jegog has been passed down from one generation to another among musical guilds in the village of Jembrana, Bali. Each instrument has eight bamboo keys base on a four-note scale. Learn to build and play this unique Balinese Gamelan variation under the guidance of a Jegog master. We will pack your Jegog so you can take it home.
