Urban jungle takes hold

The thin, misty, afternoon light may be part pollution, but has its own soft qualities of intrigue. The bamboo grove in the Station South Park merges into the sky and almost leaves the traffic behind. The architectural gem of the public toilet, with its own encased mini bamboo grove, is close by.

And I’m not alone in relishing this structured but unmanicured plant life. In a mapping workshop with the Primary School in Longwu Road one student lavishes attention on what I first thought were trees in tubs, but she corrects me and clearly knows her local bamboo better than I do.

    That local bamboo drawing is delicious… you’re up to far more than the blog reveals. Inscrutable.
