Sunken Bridge by RO&AD

The Sunken Bridge project is one of those small gems that are so simple yet so genius.

This bridge across the moat of a historic Dutch fort leads visitors below the water’s surface without getting them wet. Designed by architects RO&AD of the Netherlands and Belgium, the Sunken Bridge is an access route to the Fort de Roovere, which is part of a line of 17th century defence structures.
