The Moses Bridge, Halsteren, The Netherlands. This sunken pedestrian bridge designed by RO & AD Architects parts the waters of the moat surrounding the 17th century Fort de Roovere. The walkway is carved into the landscape and steps lead down into the moat. The walls are built with Accoya (a very durable softwood hybrid) and lined with an EPDM foil waterproofing. A drainage system in the center of the path allows for overflow when water levels rise.

An incredible “sunken” bridge in the Netherlands gives visitors access to a Century Dutch fort. Designed by RO & AD Architects, the Moses Bridge literally parts the waters that surround the fort, allowing pedestrians to pass through.

The Rolling Bridge, located on the Paddington Basin in London, was created by Thomas Heatherwick. It is twelve meters long and opens every Friday at noon by slowly and smoothly curling until it transforms from a conventional, straight bridge, into a circular sculpture which sits on the bank of the canal.
