Big BambĂș at the Met

Article: Big BambĂș at the Met

Starting tomorrow, visitors at the Met can head up to the roof (weather permitting) to witness identical twin brothers Mike and Doug Starn as they build a 50 foot high bamboo structure that, over the course of the spring, summer and fall, will take on the shape of a “cresting wave.” The first phase, measuring 100 feet long, 50 feet wide and 30 feet tall has already completed with the help of a team of rock climbers who will continue to assist the artists over the duration of the exhibition.
