How To Make A Bridge You Can Walk On From Just A Few Sheets Of Paper...

Well ok, perhaps more than just a few sheets. Actually, says Steve Massam, the man who's favourite colour for his art installations is red, there's twenty two thousand individual sheets of paper used here. They're all held in position by the compression method. This cute little bridge crosses a stream in the rural Lake District National Park in the UK's Cumbria.
It's simple really says Steve. It relies on the Vernacular Architectural Principles that have been used on walls and bridges
for thousands of years.
And I keep my fingers crossed...

  1. That is a neat bridge, but really, couldn't you just step over that little creek?
