Wooden Nest Bridge


nest bridge -1

There are all sorts of levels of insane associated with this bridge.

At first glance it just doesn’t look real.  Like a render, or a cartoon, just something that doesn’t exist in real life.  But it does. It’s an overpass in the town of Sneek in The Netherlands.

Apparently it’s the first wooden bridge in the world that can support the loads it does.

Oh, and in case you didn’t think it was really made of wood, and that was all just a veneer, here’s a cross section:

I gotta say, that is one of the most amazing looking bridges I’ve ever seen.  And I used to be a civil engineer, this was almost my job.
