(NextCity.org) Alcobendas, Spain has unveiled a 3D-printed pedestrian bridge spanning a small canal in Castilla La Mancha park. The approximately 40-foot concrete bridge is made up of eight separate parts that fit together, and was created using an additive manufacturing process.
Alcobendas’ bridge was printed from concrete by engineering firm Acciona and designed by the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia to resemble forms that occur in nature. The biomimetic bridge looks like it’s made of twisting branches or roots.
