The Moses Bridge couldn't have a better name

When we traditionally think of a bridge, we imagine it spanning over the top of the water.The folks at RO&AD Architecten though have taken the concept and tweaked it a bit, instead putting the bridge in the water. Called The Moses Bridge, the bridge is made from Accoya wood, “a high technology wood that is supposedly harder and more durable than some of the best tropical woods. It is treated with a nontoxic anti-fungal coating.” The bridge actually leads to a 17th Century Dutch fort, and the water you’re seeing is a moat that surrounds the fort. All in all it’s a clever idea done rather well, so well in fact that they’re a finalist in the Dutch Design Awards.
