We’ve always loved IBUKU’s beautiful bamboo structures , but their latest project, the Ananda House, is simply stunning. The private home, located in Sibang Gede, Bali, is made up of three multi-level bamboo towers embedded into Bali’s lush green vegetation. The bamboo buildings are designed to exist in harmony with the heavily-forested landscape – and they protect the surrounding vegetation as much as possible. While constructing the homes’ many balconies, IBUKU cut holes into the roofs’ overhangs in order to make way for the surrounding trees to grow.

The pavilion to the right houses the family room, which is a large space with an open-air terrace. At the heart of the living area is the kitchen, complete with a curving countertop made from slabs of locally-sourced river stone . The bedrooms are perched over the living space and designed to take advantage of natural light and ventilation. Each room has an east-facing private balcony that provides incredible views over the valley. To the back of the main building is a grotto pool whose design mimics the natural landscape, creating a fun, indoor-outdoor space. The master bedroom is located at the highest point of the structure. It’s a stunningly romantic space with a lookout tower at the top. The sleeping area is located on the first level, and an attached outdoor bathroom , complete with a monolithic bathtub, looks out over the valley. + IBUKU Via Archdaily

Comments Off on How Monsanto is Turning an Island Paradise Into a GMO Wasteland

Monsanto is conquering one of the world’s most stunning utopias – and it’s happening right under our noses. The company is turning the picturesque island of Molokai into a GMO laboratory, and it’s treating the island’s inhabitants as lab rats. The biotech behemoth arrived on Molokai with big promises of delivering jobs, however local islanders have been exposed to a constant dosing of harmful toxins in the air and groundwater, with no end in sight.
