Hong Kong preserves the ancient technique of bamboo scaffolding for use in a modern city full of tall buildings

Bamboo scaffolding can sometimes be seen in Hong Kong’s skyscrapers supported by steel structures and reinforced concrete. The workers who move swiftly and like Spider-Man in the bamboo netting rarely have a fear of heights, but dare to take risks. They wrapped their legs around the bamboo poles to maintain balance, freeing up their hands to carry out various operations at high altitude. Bamboo scaffolding dates back centuries and is still particularly suited to the tight spaces of Hong Kong’s tall buildings.
