Bamboo, an extremely eco-friendly and cost-effective resource, has long been used as scaffolding in Asia.
Bamboo can be cut and tailor-made and it can be configured into a variety of shapes and follow irregular architectural features of a building.
It takes very little time to put up, is light and easily transportable to other sites and it can easily be recycled and used for another project.
Oh and it doesn't rust.
But, however wonderful the material is to put up I think there are a few toe boards, guard rails and brick guards missing in the photo.
