Robarts Interiors & Architecture, a Beijing-based design firm known for creating high-quality corporate interiors, is using their edgy and eco-friendly designs on important school projects in China.
One project is the Robarts-designed Bamboo School in Yunnan, on China's border with Myanmar, due for completion in December 2007.
"The Bamboo School is hardly what one would expect in this remote and impoverished outpost of rural China," says Adam Robarts. "Despite the fact that bamboo is not yet recognized as an approved construction material in China, other than for decoration, we have used this indigenous material to create a school where bamboo is used for bridges and in filigree bamboo screens, both interior and exterior, to create an uplifting, almost ethereal educational environment."
