A Bridge Over Troubled Water
January 6, 2012 § Leave a comment
The moat encircling a 17th Century Dutch Fort has been the setting for an innovative new bridge concept. The moat water was too deep to walk through and too shallow to boat across, sparking an inventive solution from RO and AD Architecture company. The sunken bridge cuts through the waters without diminishing the natural aesthetics of the fort. The structure is made from sustainable FSC and PEFC certified Accoya wood and treated with a nontoxic coating that protects it from fungal decay, extending its longevity. The bridge has come to be known as ‘The Moses Bridge of Fort de Roovere’ because of the way it divides the waters to make a path.
