An Inflatable Trampoline Bridge In Paris

Viktor Venson

There are many ways to cross the River Seine, but the inflatable trampoline bridge envisioned by Paris-based agency AZC must surely be one of the most enjoyable ones.

Formed by three giant lifebuoy-like inflatable modules—30 meters in diameter—strung together by cord, the bridge is set to be located strategically in relation to the Eiffel Tower, so as to provide users with a unique view of the city.

    You all are completely missing the point. It's not meant to be practical with a laptop or briefcase. You cross just to say you crossed, to have a pick-me-up and enjoy life for a minute.

    It's beautiful but as a regular commuter, this might not be ideal. "With security and safety set aside", cross would be extremely hazardous for items like your laptop as well.

      A 'seine' person wouldn't use this bridge as a normal commute route, especially if you are carrying a laptop or coffee. The article says there are already many ways to cross, and this one looks like the most fun!

      not to mention the morning lattes :)

      I agree. AZC should also envision a more practical bridge next to the fun zone. Unfortunately, that might make commuters on business feel like party poopers. If there was a bridge that had a mid-section of exercise areas, but also a pathway to walk, that could encourage commuters to be more mindful of their health.
