Bolted Bamboo Connections in Modern Construction Use

Musicians of all ages and genres feature the Barbican in their music videos. Youtuber Phil Gyford’s playlist “The Barbican in Music Videos” compiles songs from artists including British rapper Skepta, UK rock band Coldplay, the infamous electronic musician Moby, and guitarist James Morrison. Even modern pop artist Dua Lipa strut her stuff through the Barbican while singing her song, “Blow Your Mind (Mwah).”

The steel is strong enough to withstand the pressure of the tightened bolts. As well there are used two bolts in vertical direction. Bolted Bamboo Connections in Modern Construction Use
