Sunken Pedestrian Bridge in Netherlands Parts The Waters Like Mosesby Tom on Nov 14, 2011 • 4:07 pm 4 Comments
Ro Koster and Ad Kil Architects built this amazing sunken bridge for crossing the defensive fortress in Halsteren, the Netherlands. The bridge sits within the water and slope surrounding the 17th Century Dutch fort and gives visitors a unique opportunity to walk trough parted waters like Moses.
The so-called “Moses bridge” was made from Accsys Technologies’ Accoya wood sheet pilling on either side with a hardwood deck and stairs in between. Accoya wood was chosen for its durability, stability and sustainable benefits and is constructed using a tongue and groove method.
