Moses Bridge – RO&AD

1 comment
architecture, urban and landscape

Leading visitors accross the water’s surface without getting them wet, this sunken bridge by Dutch and Belgian architects RO&AD  lies flush with the surface of the water. The trench bridge crosses one of a series of historic moats that surround the Fort de Roovere in The Netherlands, built during the 17th century to provide protection from invasion by France and Spain.

Breaking this encirclement of protection, the sides of the bridge are made from Accoya wood, an anti-decay material, which hold back the water like a dam.

Yet the bridge does not disrupt the view of the moat, which remains intact to the eye when seen from a distance. It does not protrude into the surrounding landscape but keeps the focus on the original aesthetic integrity of the landscape.
