The inflatable bridge equipped with giant trampolines, installed near the Bir-Hakeim Bridge, is dedicated to the joyful release from gravity as one bounces above the river.
The floating buoys, filled with 3700 cubic meters of air and fabricated in PVC membrane, are attached together by cord to form a stable and self-supporting ensemble.
From Atelier Zündel Cristea:
“The competition brief, A Bridge in Paris, allows us to locate an architectural reflection within this same realm of contemporary urban enjoyment. It appears to us that Paris has the bridges and passages necessary for the flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic across its waterways. Our intention is to invite its visitors and inhabitants to engage on a newer and more playful path across this same water.”
