Dans le pont / In the bridge

Franchir l’eau en passant en son sein, c’était l’expérience proposée par Moïse. Et c’est maintenant aussi celle que proposent les architectes RO&AD pour franchir la ligne de douves du Fort de Rooevere. Ce fort, qui au 17ème siècle, défendait le sud des Pays-Bas, est construit sous le niveau du sol, le rendant presque invisible. Alors quand il a fallu le rénover en conservant son aspect indétectable, les architectes ont proposé ce pont qui passe dans l’eau. Une solution parfaite qui offre en outre une expérience étonnante pour les visiteurs

Walking through the sea was one of Moses’s great achievement. You will now be able to do the same if you visit the Fort de Rooevere. This fortress used to protect the south of The Netherlands in the 17th century. Built under the sea level, it was completely invisible for the invaders. That’s why, when the architects were asked to create a bridge to reach the Fort, they proposed a bridge in the water rather than a bridge over the water. Keeping intact the invisible aspect of the fortress: no bridge to indicate where to go to enter the Fort !
