Bridge Made From 22,000 Sheets of Paper

paperbridge1

paperbridge6

Environmental artist Steve Messam has built a bridge from 22,000 pieces of paper. Nestled in the English countryside, the structure operates like a freestanding arch and is held together solely by compression (i.e. chunks of 1,000 pieces of paper grouped tightly together).

Of course, while the bridge is fully functional, has already supported over 7,000 visitors, and only gets stronger when wet, it will eventually be torn down. Like all of Messam’s installations, the bridge is meant to draw people’s attention to their surroundings rather than alter the natural landscape in any permanent way. Check out more images of the paperbridge below.
