Margot Krasojevic is attempting to clean Amsterdam's waterways with her newest bridge concept. The bridge is designed to suck up the dirty water of the canals and purify it, all while providing cyclists and pedestrians with a modern and multifunctional crossing point.

This footbridge structure has a look all its own, and similar to that of a vortex. This atypical shape symbolizes the action taking place beneath the bridge, and is sure to make the bridge an attraction to tourists. Aside from cleaning up the canals and giving pedestrians and bikers a place to cross, Margot Krasojevic also included a small coffee shop in the bridge's design. Europe is known for its cutting-edge architectural designs and emphasis on green living, which means that it may not be long until a bridge like this appears in Amsterdam.
