Neil Thomas announces AA Visiting School programme with Green School, Bali

Director Neil has teamed up with the Green School's Orin Hardy, and architectural designer and urban researcher Julia King to deliver a new AA visiting school this summer in Bali. 

BambooU(niversity) was an idea originally conceived to help teach professionals about the potential of bamboo as a green building material. In its current form it is a design and build workshop hosted by the Kul Kul Farm at the Green School Bali; in collaboration with the structural engineering firm, Atelier One. Immersed within the Green School structures, this AA Visiting School is a unique opportunity to design and build with bamboo in parallel to proposing a masterplan for BambooU. The group will investigate the available sites and work with Elora Hardy from Ibuku, the design firm that built the Green School, and benefit from a range of global experts who will inform the process.

Along with the development of a BambooU master plan, participants will engage in a series of on-site workshops and the group will experience first-hand the potential of bamboo.
