Indonesian architecture firm Ibuku has collaborated with bamboo construction expert Jörg Stamm and structural engineering company Atelier One to build the Arc, an intricate bamboo structure at the well-known Green School in Bali, Indonesia. The Arc comprises a series of intersecting 14-metre-tall bamboo arches joined by anticlastic gridshells, which derive their strength from curving in two opposite directions. While the resultant enclosure is strong and sturdy, its arches still manage to appear delicate and lightweight, as if they were made of fabric.
