Blending in seamlessly with its surroundings, this living green bridge is protecting wildlife in Seoul, Korea.

The bridge will act as an extension of the mountain slopes that are currently split by a busy highway. Animals commonly wander from the mountain toward the bustling roads, endangering both themselves and passengers in oncoming vehicles. The bridge is designed as a safe passageway between one side of the mountain and the other. The living structure will stimulate an "organic mountain side path," running over top of the highway and providing a safe route for wildlife – all without disrupting the flow of traffic. The suspended structure was designed with both thought and intent to build stronger connections with nature, allowing humans and animals to co-exist safely.
