Without any fixings, this wooden pedestrian bridge can hold up to 500 kilograms

The prototype, created by Diego Poblete and Professor Francisco Quitral (Architect)

Developed by architect Diego Poblete, this wooden pedestrian bridge, capable of supporting up to 500 kilograms, was inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s self-supporting bridge and based on a modular design.

Assembled without the use of a single screw, the four-metre long structure can easily be constructed in less than fifteen minutes without intermediate support and fittings.
