ballon bridge

As some design site pointed out, it has been a hot time for bridges lately, with the Trampoline Bridge concept (featured here).

This one is an installation suspended by three large helium balloons. Designed by French installation artist Olivier GrossetêtePont de Singe is located over a lake in the Japanese Garden at Tatton Park in the UK. The bridge isn’t walkable, unfortunately.

Designed for contemplation rather than function, the work aims to recall “the power of daydreams and their ability to transform reality”. What a great desciription – it actually says what I felt, that it reminds me of a picture from a fairy tale book, maybe “Alice in wonderland”, again?
