The very light, ephemeral-looking bridge has what is known as a tensegrity structure. The design reveals the tension and compression of the structure in its web-like form. An aluminum deck shaped like an aircraft wing is suspended between two rows of steel stakes. The palisade-like stakes frame the view for people crossing the bridge, in a way reminiscent of the lines of poplar trees that traditionally run alongside Dutch country roads.
