Green School’s vision is to create a natural, holistic, student-centered learning environment that empowers and inspires students to be creative, innovative, green leaders. Its bamboo buildings are an integral part of this vision. When John and Cynthia founded Green School they wanted to build it out of the most environmentally friendly material possible, and they wanted it to be beautiful. Bamboo was the logical option. IBUKU was born out of the construction of Green School. It is here that the original bamboo design-build team was formed, and it was here where many of the design principles and construction techniques that inspire our newest structures were developed. Today, IBUKU continues to design new structures, furniture, and gardens for Green School.
