Sometimes architects get all the fun.
This bridge was designed by dutch architectural company Ro&Ad Architects in Fort de Roovere in Halsteren, The Netherlands. The bridge was designed to address the need to allow visitors to cross the moat at this historical site without the design having the visual impact, that a traditional bridge woudl have had. The solution was a channel bridge, that is not visible. I really like how the architects treated the water as a solid surface that could also be cut away, like a block of marble is to a sculpture. I am curious to know whether the water levels flactuate though.
