THE Golden Jubilee Park coming up on Yamuna riverfront has been witnessing hectic activity since the past three months. Stacked across a portion of the park are what appear to be building blocks carved out of bamboo. The sound of carving machines rings loud as Ulrich Wallner, the man behind the project, watches the teams at work.
Director of Bambutec, Wallner flew in from Germany to train and work with teams from India. They are busy creating the components that will be fitted together to form bridges, machans and shelters — one in the shape of a flower — at the park.
