art of using bamboo to construct scaffoldings has been around for a long time.
Even nowadays, you can routinely see bamboo scaffoldings in Hong Kong.
It is interesting
to watch the workers build one, and it is even more fun to watch them disassemble
one especially if it shrouds the whole building because they would pass each bamboo
stick down by relay, sometimes letting it free fall for the next guy below to
catch. Just be sure you are out of the way when they do that!
