@SarahofBorg, maybe just not built straight, the sections are quite short, it`s not carrying lots of weight so less of an issue than if it were steel - the `connectors` (rope) aren`t as rigid as with steel either so can take more twisting without failing.

Bamboo is amazing, but that is clearly bent out of shape and about to snap.

Not only that, but it is much lighter than steel, so it will not collapse under it`s own weight like a steel scaffolding would if there were a problem.

Plus those guys are always climbing around in flip-flops and carrying tools in a kids beach bucket. Love it

It is only cheaper if you pay your workers slave wages.

Saw it being used all over Hong Kong then read in a museum/tour or something that it`s just as good as metal at keeping the buildings up. Allows a bit of flexibility and a hellallotter cheaper then steel.

What`s the point? A good portion of Asia builds very substantial buildings this way.

Bamboo is actually very very strong when used right. However, these guys arent using it right. At all.
