Poland’s “Twig Bridge”

03/13/14

Ever want to feel what life was like from an ant’s perspective? This Polish “twig bridge” is probably the closest thing you’ll get to recreating that backyard scene from Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. (Don’t play. We know you’ve seen it if you were born in the mid-‘80s. Everyone else—you’re off the hook.)

Designed by UGO Architecture, the structure takes its queues from that log that fell down in your backyard, with metal stumps and offshoots creating a deceivingly solid base. The platform itself takes on the shape of a halved piece of wood, scooped out to make room for, you know, bird watching and whatever you do on a pedestrian bridge.
