The Moses Bridge: A Sunken Pedestrian Bridge In Netherlands

The Moses Bridge was developed by two architects by the name of Ad Kil and Ro Koster. It was built through a moat that had been made in the Netherlands in the 17th century for protection from Spain and France. The bridge cannot be seen from a distance. It’s not until you are upon the bridge that you will notice how unique it really is. The Moses Bridge sits in the water, and the water level goes right up to the top of the bridge but does not overflow. Two dams on each end of the moat keep the water at the appropriate level, and when it rains, a pump at the bottom of the bridge pumps out the water.
