Balloon Bridge

Balloon Bridge

Unique bridge designed by French artist Olivier Grossetete is supported by three helium filled balloons.

Pont de Singe (Monkey Bridge) is located in Tatton Park’s beautiful green garden in Cheshire, England.

Creative balloon bridge was made for contemplation rather than function.

    I am amazed at how brilliant people make the dream-like possible.

    this is fantastic, unfortunately it was made for contemplation rather than function. if only somehow the bridge was well function too, it must be amazing.

    lol first time see “bridge” go from land right into water . serious what is the point for that bridge ?

  4. gunneos

    agree with M. it looks pointless. now imagine those photos without the bridge. serene nature in all its glory!

    Very nice, may is not function now, but that bring great Idea for new design , may we add more balloon and change some thing, can be function. Thanks for who bring this idea and built it

    Cool to see the drawings of the artist alongside the actual thing – incredible how similar the two are.

    and a gust of wind should do wonders for this bridge. Perhaps it will settle on land this time.

    Interesting. Must have been a pain to install. Man and his artful endeavors.

    Does not function now.. will not function later. anything that would contain the helium for any feasible length of time would also be too heavy to float properly. Not to mention the complete reengineering that would be required to make that bridge anything remotely safe or useable to walk on.

    It’s pretty… but it will never be functional.

    I think it would’ve been a better experience for people if they could walk on it too (and reach the other side).

    Yo Gert – read the description. It’s not meant to be functional.

    it’s be cool if it could hold one person at a time just to sit in the center and just chill. maybe all it’d need is more helium (which is very expensive) but for a child that would be a fun experience.

    beautiful and creative idea,although it is looks to blowup in air at any time.
