World’s strangest bridges
An old railway bridge that had become an eyesore in Wuppertal, Germany, now surprises passersby with a neon underbelly that looks like a supersize Lego project. In fact, it’s the strange, inspired work of a street artist known as Megx.
Most bridges have a simple mission: to transport people and vehicles from point A to point B in the most efficient way possible. But where is the fun in that? Like Megx, some civil engineers and architects have let their imaginations run free when it comes to designing these deceptively simple spans, producing wonderfully strange bridges that confound, amuse and sometimes solve complex planning challenges.
