This structure isn't walkable but its inventive design raises questions about whether this could be a new, fast way to build suspended structures.

There have been some pretty inventive ideas for bridges lately, like the inflatable trampoline concept. This one is an installation suspended by three large helium balloons. Designed by French installation artist Olivier Grossetête, Pont de Singe is located over a lake in the Japanese Garden at Tatton Park in the UK.

Designboom notes that the bridge, which unfortunately isn’t walkable, is an extension of his earlier 2007 work Pont Suspendu. Designed for contemplation rather than function, the work aims to recall “the power of daydreams and their ability to transform reality”.
