Invisible Pedestrian Bridge in Netherlands
And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry, and the waters were divided…
However, no magic was necessary this time. Ro Koster and Ad Kil Architects built this almost invisible bridge for crossing the defensive fortress in Halsteren, the Netherlands. The amazing sunken bridge sits within the water and slope surrounding the 17th Century Dutch fort and gives visitors a unique opportunity to walk trough parted waters like Moses.
The bridge was made from Accsys Technologies’ Accoya wood sheet pilling on either side with a hardwood deck and stairs in between. Accoya wood was chosen for its durability, stability and sustainable benefits and is constructed using a tongue and groove method.
