A Paris-based design firm has concocted what could be the funnest bridge in the world: It's a trampoline.
Bridge in Paris by AZC architecture studio, the third-place winner of the Archtriumph competition, consists of an inflatable bridge with three giant modules (read: trampolines). Travelers would cross by leaping across - perhaps fun theoretically, but a lawsuit waiting to happen actually. AZC had hoped to integrate a sense of playfulness with urban design:
It appears to us that Paris has the bridges and passages necessary for the flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic across its waterways. Our intention is to invite its visitors and inhabitants to engage on a newer and more playful path across this same water. We propose, now, a distinctive urban feature: An inflatable bridge equipped with giant trampolines, dedicated to the joyful release from gravity as one bounces above the river.
