This bridge, created by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban, uses eco-friendly, lightweight materials. It is built over the Gordon River in southern France. The bridge is made from 281 cardboard tubes, each 11.5 cm. across and 11.9 mm. thick. It is strong enough to carry 20 people at a time.
The designer noted, "It is a very interesting contrast, the Roman stone bridge and the paper bridge. Paper too can be permanent, can be strong and lasting. We need to get rid of these prejudices."
