Building Bridges

In the week prior to the bridge appearing in town, local people come together for a host of bridge-building activity.

Community groups, schools, businesses and individuals are invited to build their own bridges using one of our Bridge Kits.

Imagineer's Bridge Kit is inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s design for a self-supporting bridge. It can be built by anyone of any age and experience in less than two hours.

Our bridge-builders have been out in Dagenham during July 2021 - visit the gallery.

A group of 9 people stand in front of a bridge they have made using wooden poles, called a Da Vinci mathematical bridge. It it self-supporting, and uses no nails or screws to stay up.

A woman wearing a denim skirt, white t-shirt and hard hat walks across the self-supporting bridge, whilst a member of the Imagineer team look on, ready to help her if she needs it. She has her arms wide to help balance, and is beaming with fun.
The self-supporting bridge can hold the weight of several grown adults
