Bird Bridge in Sweden by Visiondivision

We may be biased, given our love of owls here at Inhabitat, but the “Bird Bridge” by architectural firm visiondivision  is quite a poetic design solution. Located deep in a forest in Gothenburg, Sweden, the Bird Bridge crosses a rift, linking a hospital to a series of botanical gardens. Two pedestrian bridges are also intended as bird-friendly, providing secret resting places for our avian friends.
The construction itself is simple, fallen trees from the forest serving as structural pillars, while providing a landing place for native bird populations. A simple steel truss structure and railing completes the span. We love that an architectural solution can be context-sensitive, and provide functionality for two-legged and winged creatures alike.
