The organic bamboo and the manual knots make each jointure different, yet when repeated in an orderly way, results in a clear system of organization. The layers of ladders result in a visually complex yet controlled composition. A gap which serves as an entrance splits the structure in 2, weakening the lateral forces of each side.
30 red neon tubes, representing the 30 days in a Lunar month, encased in clear acrylic tubes, act as the structural tie beams to pull the 2 sides together. A floor of red mirror reflects and duplicates the structure downwards. The black lacquered bamboo represents Hong Kong Heritage, and the red neon and mirror represents our city’s vibrancy and energy.
