Join Bamboo U

Bamboo U is a design and build intensive course. An 11 day immersion into our bamboo world here in Bali. This program provides students with a foundation in bamboo construction to inform their work as designers, architects, engineers, developers, entrepreneurs, and environmental advocates.

The Bamboo U Campus is located next to the IBUKU design office and bamboo factory, and it is walking distance from the Green School. Our curriculum covers botanics, traditional craftsmanship, engineering, biophilic design, and the fundamentals of sustainable bamboo architecture. Every topic is supported by theoretical lectures and practical workshops. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet and engage with bamboo innovators, entrepreneurs, and designers. The course content is created in collaboration with the IBUKU design team and is inspired by the knowledge and know-how of world-class bamboo experts.

Bamboo’s versatility is unparalleled, and so is Bamboo U’s. As an engineer, the construction phase of the course was particularly fulfilling given that you get to synthesize everything you’ve learnt in a practical, hands-on, tangible way.
