Trampoline Bridge, Paris, France


Image

We could cross the river Seine on a regular ol’ stone bridge. Or, we could dream up the most whimsical — and consequently difficult — way of crossing Paris’ main artery, transforming the commute into something extraordinary.

Image

Design firm Atelier Zündel Cristea opted for the latter. They conceptualized a bridge for the river Seine made up of humungous floating trampolines.

As the design firm puts it, the bridge is “dedicated to the joyful release from gravity.”

Image

three donut-shaped PVC structures filled with 3,700 cubic meters of air. In the center of each of these giant life preservers is a trampoline measuring 30 meters in diameter. These floating bouncy platforms are twisted to form arches and attached together with cord to form a bridge connecting the banks of the river Seine.
