If the idea of scaffolding induces a «little by little» construction, the proliferation of a temporary structure has here no real beginning or end. The project started from naïve material experiments, without preliminary drawings: a simple slit and a hot bending allows a bamboo slat to change direction. Repeated, this modular system grows in space thanks to a mechanical joining system, specially appropriate to quick assembly and disassembly, for temporary uses.
