The Starn Brother’s, creators of the previously posted Big Bambu, have taken to the roof of New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. Their newest iteration of Big Bambu, “You Can’t, You Won’t and You Don’t Stop” takes over the roof garden of the MET, offering visitors a surreal experience to climb into their living (living in that its constantly being constructed, the Bambu has been cut) and even loftier views of the City. While Mike and Doug speak about the sublime feeling of experiencing something larger than ourselves (which is cool too) we’re pretty certain that the Brothers are actively redefining architecture and showing us how life can once again become part of our built environment —  way cooler than just climbing on big stuff. The show has been open since April and will continue through October. If you’re in NYC we recommend taking the climb. Let us know if you do, we’ll be there in September.
