Beneath the sacred volcano Mount Agung in East Bali, designer Linda Garland revived traditional Sumatran Minangkabau architecture

The East Bali vacation home of american film producer/director Rob Cohen is featured in the August 2009 issue of Architectural Digest.

This is one of the buildings at Bambu Indah, a hotel resort in Bali owned by John Hardy of Green School fame. It's built with sustainably grown black bamboo from Java. Black Bamboo (Gantochloa atroviolacea) grows as tall as 12m in Central & West Java where it is known as Wulung. The design of this building, which was built in 30 days, is based on the rumah bagonjong (spired roof house) of the Minangkabau people who live in Sumatra.

The legs of this black bamboo building, inspired by the architecture of the Minangkabau people in Sumatra, are musical.
