Being invited as one of the five curators for the first Beijing International Design Triennial in 2011, Freeman Lau has set Rethinking Bamboo as the theme of his pavilion. After visiting over 10 cities, more than 200 pieces of bamboo products were collected from all around the world. In this book, “Rethinking Bamboo”, most pieces shown in the exhibition were included while more other items are added. Scholars and bamboo experts are invited to write about the latest trends and knowledge, and to share their views and analysis over this traditional material.
