Green School in Bali
Also heading into a new era is the education industry, spearheaded by the community behind Green School in Bali, Indonesia. Already changing lives of the local Balinese community for 10 years, Green School is nestled in the embrace of Mother Nature, within an environmental and sustainable architecture made out of bamboo, the school offers academia programs from the early years to high school and beyond.
Teaching students not only those from the conventional classrooms, the school offers classes for environmental science, entrepreneurial learning and creative arts, with hands-on experiences that aim to create a new generation children with a higher respect and awareness towards the environment – and in the long run, continue humanity’s effort in giving back to Mother Earth.
Gucci Garden in Florence
Dedicated to an exploration of the eclectic creativity that lies at the very heart of the House, the Gucci Garden opens its doors to the public. Clothing, accessories, video installations, artworks, documents and artefacts, dating back to the House’s Florentine origins in 1921, are displayed and organised by themes over the two floors of the Gucci Garden Galleria.
The ground floor is given over to a bazaar-like retail space organised across two large rooms. Here, products featuring the Gucci Garden Gothic script, exclusively designed for the Gucci Garden are available, and are not on sale in any other Gucci stores around the world.
Also seen at the ground level is the restaurant Gucci Osteria, where Chef Massimo Bottura (of the three-Michelin-star Osteria Francescana fame) concocts an entirely new menu of Italian cuisine, influenced by his travels.
