Heading to this over the long weekend...and I'm psyched.

New Jersey-born brothers Doug + Mike Starn created Big Bambu: You Can't, You Don't, and You Won't Stop, on the rooftop of the MET. It's a huge structure made of bamboo poles (100 feet long, by 50 wide and 50 high) that will continue to be worked on into the fall by a team of 20 artists and rock climbers (don't try this at home, kids).

The shape of the structure itself as well as the movement of it as it gets built resembles that of a wave...and yes, it's named after the Beastie Boys song.

Perhaps I'll see you there?

Read more about it here and learn about the artists here.

Lastly, check out a NY Times video about the work of art and their process.
