Scaffolding in Hong Kong

Bamboo is used even in today's modern world of Hong Kong. It's cheap, lightweight, easy to build and eco-friendly. Multi-story buildings under construction or renovation are surround by bamboo and covered with netting or nylon to keep debris from falling on people below. It's quite a sight.

Below are some photos I took around Hong Kong.

Cool scaffolding. I wonder if there exists any safety codes/guidance on maximum height or member size. It is amazing what they have done with native materials.

RE: Scaffolding in Hong Kong

Your photos have captured well. Another wonderful use of bamboo in construction.

Bamboos are strong and flexible. They were used to build bridges narrow and wide for walking one side of the river to the other. They're still up even today. It's a wonderful grass!

RE: Scaffolding in Hong Kong

I agree. Amazing! Thanks for sharing.

Fascinating, they look like an art installation.
