This bridge is made out of paper and nothing else

Believe it or not, this five metre, bright red bridge is made purely of paper. The construction, which arches over a stream in the Grisedale Valley, Patterdale, in the Lake District, uses no glue, bolts or other fixings and yet can withstand the weight of a man (and his dog). It even gets stronger when it rains.

PaperBridge is an outdoor art installation created by artist Steve Messam, open to the public until May 18. It comprises 22,000 sheets of paper, made at Cumbria’s Burneside Mill and carefully packed together over a wooden frame which was subsequently removed. It will be sent back to the mill for recycling once the installation is complete. Source: This bridge is made out of paper and nothing else
