Culture: Tourist Attraction
Transparent Scaffolding for Sightseers   (+6, -3)  [vote for, against]
Build scaffolding with clear PVC pipes.

On vacation, I have often come across the main attraction completely obstructed by scaffolding, as necessary maintenance is being done. There has been scaffolding on Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower, Cinderella's Castle, etc. at the time I have been there to view them. I propose that the scaffolding should be built using clear PVC pipes, and any tarps be replaced with clear plastic sheeting. This would allow better viewing of the attraction. Perhaps, for after dark, when the workers are not there, strings of Christmas lights inside the pipes could be lit to add another aspect. I'd suggest neon, but I don't know whether it would work in plastic pipes.

How about transparent waterpipes. Would look nice.

I think I'm in the wrong room.

Perhaps we're going at this from the wrong direction. What we need is walking surfaces held up by thin string.

"Why, yes ... yes they are."
"Thought so." *turns and runs*

I think pedestrians would be bumping into it all the time if it was at ground level, but further up it would be good, though i imagine it would get dirty quite quickly.
