Ephemera II and Transience were developed for the Lille 2004 European Cultural Capital Festival. Bambuco collaborated with Compagnie Caracol, Groupe F and Eric Loustau-Carrere to transform the main street in Lille, Rue de Fayette, to celebrate the Cultural Capital win. 
                It was a massive project, designed to be unforgettable - over 450 metres in length and using 17km of bamboo. The main structure, which was 30m high, was one of the largest freestanding bamboo structures to be built at the time. It utilised the same cigar-shape structures that had been found to be the easiest to work with in the earlier Dunkerque project. In the town square of Lille there were 20 individual structures, some which leapt over the road.
                The works underwent a series of transformations throughout the festival and it was the first time Bambuco showcased very different styles of work in the one geographical area.
