    These bridges are located in Amsterdam and were made by Naomi. Three unusual red steel bridges extend over the water between the islands Sporenburg and Borneo. Two of these three bridges stretch for 90m and the 3d one is 25 meters long. The pedestrian bridge is the most unusual one.link.

    Deep inside Russian countryside there is a place with a strange object. It’s made solely of wood and is called “The Half-Bridge of Hope”.
    It looks like a wooden bridge from one side of hill to another which suddenly finishes on its half. It has no any logical meaning or practical purpose, just stands in one of numerousRussian villages as an art object, made of wood as everything other around it. link

    The Dutch have a tendency to do things differently. The Slauerhoffbrug, located in Leeuwarden, was designed by Van Driel Mechatronica to be a fully automatic bridge with an ability to sense and adapt to its surroundings. link

    The Pegasusbrug near Ouistreham in France, which was a stepping stone for tail bridges, is a limited turntable bascule bridge.link

    The William Pont Bridge in Zaanstad, created by Van Driel Mechatronica BV, inspired the design of the Slauerhoffbrug. link

    The Bridge of Aspiration between the Royal Ballet School and the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. By Wilkinson Eyre Architects, it provides the dancers of the Royal Ballet School with a direct link to the Grade 1 listed Royal Opera House link.

    This is an old and kind of strange bridge connecting the Mining Building at the University of Toronto to whatever that building is behind it.
