This concept from agency AZC proposes creating an inflatable ‘bridge’ across the Seine that would enable people to bounce above the river and view the Eiffel Tower.

Paris-based architecture agency AZC has designed a concept bridge for the river Seine that offers contemporary urban enjoyment. Installed near the Bir-Hakeim Bridge, it is made up of large inflatable modules with trampolines in the middle. Floating buoys, fabricated in PVC membrane, are attached together by cord to create a stable and self-supporting group. Each module develops while under tension (filled with 3700 cubic meters of air) into an arch-like form.

designboom notes that the bridge would be located near to the Eiffel Tower so it would provide a unique experience and viewpoint. The trampolines would enable people to see their surroundings in a new and unusual way.
