Bounce Across the Seine on a Giant Trampoline Bridge


After repeated viewings of Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, we couldn’t help but fantasize about taking a magical stroll on the Pont Alexandre III, a bridge that many consider to be the loveliest in Paris. A new conceptual design by Paris-based studio AZC taps into feelings of nostalgia as well — albeit of the schoolyard variety. Their winning submission to the “Bridge in Paris” competition turns crossing the Seine into an incredibly playful experience. How so? They’ve dreamed up an inflatable bridge that’s outfitted with giant trampolines that allow you to bounce your way from the Left Bank over to the Right Bank. Click through to get a better look at the renderings, which we spotted thanks to Designboom, and keep your fingers crossed that someone actually decides to makes this crazy idea a reality!
