Another ingenious use of Bamboo. Could you eat your house scaffolding when it’s young and tender?

October 5, 2010




In the heart of Hong Kong the contrast strikes you even more, a spider web fabric covering newly erected skyscrapers is supported with a mesh of bamboo scaffolding. Using bamboo in Asia is as common as eating rice, magnificent material with thousand uses. Classified as grass with properties of hardwood, strength of metal and growth rate like nothing else. I wonder if it could be possible to plant it in Europe. It sure would be nice to grow a bicycle frame out of bamboo. Tender and delicious when young you are left wandering if anybody could eat their scaffolding back in the west.
