Hong Kong: Bamboo Scaffolding


I'm all for using sustainable materials as a way of cutting down on waste, pollution and all that. It's a noble effort and we all ought to be involved. That said, I have to admit to being totally freaked out by the use of bamboo for scaffolding just about everywhere in Hong Kong.

Much like in New York, construction abounds here and nearly everywhere we turned there was an elaborate structure of bamboo poles like something out of Giligan's Island. It must work well enough, since we saw people climbing stories up in the air on them, but given that they were certainly never built for someone my size to pass under them, I made a point of keeping my distance.
