The Arc is the new gymnasium at the world renowned Green School in Bali, Indonesia. The first building of its kind ever made, the Arc at Green School is a series of bamboo arches spanning 19 meters, interconnected by anticlastic gridshells which derive their strength from curving in two directions. This unprecedented use of bamboo required months of research and development and fine tuning of tailor-made details. The result is a refined feat of engineering with unparalleled beauty, which stands as a testament to Green School and IBUKU's commitment to expanding horizons in the world of design.
