Bamboo Scaffolding, Tai O Village, Lantau Island

May 04, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Not all the housing and buildings in the village are built on stilts and located on the water.  This building is under construction and bamboo scaffolding, which is the normal material even when it comes to erecting the huge skyscrapers is being used. Health and Safety in the UK would have a fit if you used bamboo back home but it is a well used and very successful traditional method that hs stood the test of time.
