Build your own bridge

We invite community groups, schools, businesses and individuals to build your own bridge!

Imagineer has collaborated with civil engineers Arup to produce a Bridge Building Kit, inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s design, which can be built by anyone of any age and experience in less than two hours.

Leonardo da Vinci was the original artist-engineer. His design for a self-supporting bridge is one of the many inspirations for the Bridge project. 2019 marks the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death and what better way to celebrate this great man than by building your own bridge.

All we ask is that:

  •   Bridges are built in a prominent outdoor public space
  •   The bridge building event brings together people who wouldn’t normally meet
  •   The bridge is photographed for inclusion in our online gallery.

 If you live in Coventry or Grantham and are interested in organising a bridge building event in your community, contact Lou Lomas.
