Pedestrian Bridge Helps Chileans Cross the Highway

I always was a bit petrified when I had to cross one of those swingy, ropey, bridgey things. It just felt so unsafe, and er, wobbly. Obviously the folks at the architectural firm, Enrique Browne y Asociados Arquitectos, do not have such a fear. Their pedestrian bridge, which crosses what seems to be a pretty major highway in Zapallar, Chile, has all the similarities of the infamous rope bridge, but I am sure the collaboration of Rodrigo Rojas, Davor Pavlovic, Baltazar Sánchez and Tomás Swett made sure this one is as stable as it is aesthetically pleasing.
