Bouncy Bridge

Now this is a fun way to cross a river! The conceptual Bouncy
Bridge is the brainchild of the architect firm AZC.
It’s definitely the most in-seine-ly fun way to cross the Seine:

An inflatable bridge equipped with giant trampolines, dedicated to
the joyful release from gravity as one bounces above the river. Installed
near the Bir-Hakeim Bridge, it is formed of inflatable modules, like
giant life-preservers, 30 meters in diameter. In the central part of
each ring, a trampoline mesh is stretched. The floating buoys, fabricated
in PVC membrane, are attached together by cord to form a stable and
self-supporting ensemble. Each module under tension – filled with 3700
cubic meters of air – develops in space with an arch-like form.

Let’s get started to make this a reality, okay, Paris? Link
