In Vietnam, the best simple ancient way of connecting them together was deeply figured and commonly transferred by local great masters with a solution of short bamboo stick's joint only.

On the small land property of the unique private museum MUONG minority museum, space for art and performance were built up. The main idea is how to enhance hidden values of bamboo and simple solution of building up by hands, saving a cost cause we have no budget for.
