ONLY IN PARIS ~ INCREDIBLE!!!
The creative mind filled with childhood memories of joyful play comes up with an extraordinary proposal ~ Je suis très impressionné.
In Paris, an inflatable trampoline bridge has been proposed by the Paris-based architectural studio Atelier Zündel Cristea firm to span the Seine River. This would allow travellers a unique and fun method of crossing the Seine River near the existing Pont de Bir-Hakeim.
The three 30-meter-round inflatable modules are held together with a cord to form a self-supporting structure. Under the right amount of tension, each circle’s sides flip up, keeping Parisian bouncers at play from flopping into the river. Trampoline mesh is stretched along the inside of each ring, and floats above the water, where participants can enjoy the Seine without dipping into it.
CNet reports the proposal is part of a contemporary bridge design competition named “A Bridge in Paris,” sponsored by Arch Triumph. Mesh trampolines would stretch almost 100 feet across giant PC rings inflated with approximately 130,000 cubic feet of air.
Quoted from The Huffington Post: “It appears to us that Paris has the bridges and passages necessary for the flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic across its waterways” said architecture firm AZC on its website. “Our intention is to invite its visitors and inhabitants to engage on a newer and more playful path across this same water.”
Pour l’entreprise Atelier Zündel Cristea nous vous souhaitons bonne chance dans la compétition!
