A sustainable future for Bali

bali-sustainable-visions-book-01

Photographer Isabella Ginanneschi has created a beautiful tome on the many people using sustainable materials like bamboo to create spaces in Bali, including Indobamboo board member and bamboo pioneer, Linda Garland.

From the writeup on Architectural Digest:

The Balinese people have always made good use of the abundant natural resources found on the Indonesian island, but a growing tourist population is forcing them to take a closer look at how they should move forward to ensure a bright future. Bali: Sustainable Visions explores how architects, entrepreneurs, and artists are constructing stylish homes, resorts, and schools that are sustainably minded. A collaboration between photographer Isabella Ginanneschi—who splits her time between New York and Bali—and eco-conscious materials designer and island resident Duncan Murray Kirk, the book contains interviews with several Bali-based authorities on the subject, including Elora Hardy, who heads up design-build firm Ibuku, and designer Linda Garland.
