Locals and visitors alike will flip out (literally and figuratively) when they finally see the Amsterdam Iconic Pedestrian Bridge in person. With the competition to build it over and done with, the reigning design is Loop, a twisting structure that is reminiscent of roller coasters and Hot Wheels tracks.

The winner of the competition, Evgeni Leonov’ Architects, aimed to create a distinctive design that would stand out in the heart of the city, where it will be located. Almost mind-boggling, people may scratch their head wondering what gravity defying technology was used to make the Amsterdam Iconic Pedestrian Bridge crossable. In reality, the loop encases typical stairs that lead not only to the other side, but an observation deck as well.
