Invisible Bridge in Holland
No, your eyes are not deceiving you – the waters have indeed parted! This incredible “sunken” bridge located in the Netherlands is giving visitors a unique way to access a beautiful 17th Century Dutch fort. Designed by RO & AD Architects, the Moses Bridge literally parts the waters that surround the fort, allowing pedestrians to pass through. The bridge is made from sustainable Accsys TechnologiesAccoya wood, which is both FSC and PEFC certified.
Building a permanent bridge over the defensive moat of a 17th century fortress might send the wrong message to an invading army.
So modern-day Dutch engineers have come up with a clever way of disguising the pathway – by building it under the moat’s waterline.
The West Brabant Water Line is a series of defensive fortresses, cities and waterways in Halsteren, the Netherlands.
