In Bup We Truss

I finally made it out to Governors Island for Burble Bup construction. Today was all about building walls by stacking wattles and trussing them together with aqua-colored ropes. Much to my surprise I think this thing might actually end up looking something like the renderings. The wood-chip stuffed netted tubes blend artistically into the earth… and check out the pieces for the inflatable canopy!

There’s still time to get in on the building action but it needs to be done by Thursday, May 26th. Sign up on Rocket’s list here.
