From Inhabitat:

When you think about how much sense it makes to build structures out of bamboo - especially in places where the flexible, rapidly renewable plant thrives - we wonder why it isn't used more often. In fact, as surprising as it is, this school in Camarines Sur is the first in the Philippines made almost fully of the flexible material. The innovative building was designed by architect Eleena Jamil of Malaysia and was the winning entry in the Millennium Schools competition organized by Illac Diaz's MyShelter Foundation.
