MacLean Anchors and Big Bambu

Big Bambú is a work of installation art by identical twin artists Doug and Mike Starn. Variations on the exhibit have been constructed at several locations around the world. Combining architecture and sculpture, it examines the tension between chaos and order in nature.

Big Bambú is made of thousands of bamboo poles, lashed together to form a complex structure through which visitors walk on elevated bamboo paths even as a crew continues to build a new part of the structure. Originally displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, it has appeared in Rome, Venice, Japan, and in 2014 was installed at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. It is 52.5 feet high and covers an area of over 7,500 square feet.

One of our MacLean customers assisted in anchoring the structure with MacLean MANTA RAY™ driven earth anchors.
