John Hardy is extremely passionate about sustainability and education. Aldo and John Hardy collaborated together to design a school in Bali, Indonesia that is made entirely of bamboo. Aldo and his team at PT Bambu designed and built all the structures for the school. Here are just a few pics of the incredibleness that came about in Green School Bali.

Aldo and I in Guana Cay, Bahamas
Aldo died in 2009 in Bali. He was in his early thirties and left us way too soon. Aldo and I planned on possibly working together in Bali, which is something that I still dream of doing in his honor. Not only was Aldo a creative force to be reckon with, but he was a sweet and endearing person. I am so incredibly thankful to have been inspired and enriched by Aldo. There cannot be enough words to explain your significance in the world, Aldo. I miss you dearly and will continue to make you proud in my endeavors of sustainable design.
