Considered the Building of the Year 2011 by ArchDaily, this bridge designed by RO&AD Architecten was built in Halsteren, The Netherlands.
Located in a fortress dated from the 17th century, Fort de Roovere, the bridge crosses a moat that was once used as a water defense-line.
As a defense strategic point, it was impossible to build a bridge that could be used by the enemy, so the option was to create an invisible one made of waterproofed wood with EPDM foil.
This project has created not only a connection with the culture and historical side of the place, but also harmony with the surrounding landscape.
