Created by artists Doug and Mike Starn, “Big Bambú” amazed guests in 2010 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The artists and a team of rock climbers created this rooftop installation out of 5,000 interlocking 30- and 40-foot-long fresh-cut bamboo poles, lashed together with 50 miles of nylon rope. The structure changed throughout the exhibit, and ultimately became 100 feet long, 50 feet wide, and 50 feet high with spires, crests, and footpaths.
