Paris based Atelier Zündel Cristea have introduced this proposal for an inflatable bridge complete with three giant trampolines for pedestrians to enjoy. There are plenty of bridges al over in Paris, across the River Seine that carry cars, trains, cyclists, and pedestrians from the Left Bank to the Right. This time, AZC s came up with an original idea that would involve pedestrians. The atelier designed the bridge as its entry for a competition organized by Archtriumph, a website whose sole purpose is to organize competitions. It would be constructed from giant PVC rings inflated with more than 130,000 cubic feet of air.
Atelier Zündel Cristea says:
Our intention is to invite its visitors and inhabitants to engage on a newer and more playful path across this same water. We propose, now, a distinctive urban feature: 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.
