AbstractHong Kong is a rare place which uses the bamboo scaffolds widely and comprehensively nowadays. Bamboo scaffolding is a living heritage that subjects to changes. Based on the external factors, bamboo scaffolding and scaffolders must correspondingly change in order to adapt and survive, from the 1960s to the present.? It is important to understand the changes that have taken place in the past, in order to understand how the heritage have become what it is in the present, and thereby be able to anticipate what changes will take place in the future.? The only way to “conserve” it is to understand the process of change, so that the heritage can make adaptation and be sustained. The change of bamboo scaffolds from the 1960s to the present time is the research topic of this dissertation.
