Can This Fun LEGO Footbridge Encourage Pedestrian Traffic?

The footbridge is underrated. It really doesn't get enough love, though we can't figure out why. They're necessary, functional, and economical, packing a lot of sculptural form in a neat, capsule-sized dose. Call them flyovers, elevated paths, people-movers, or whatever, we love them.

Jantzen says the design reimagines what a footbridge can be. His version comprises three parallel rows; the outer two are undulating paths that sandwich a smooth, rolling ramp. "Those who want to exercise more vigorously while crossing the bridge, might want to take the stairs. Those on a bike, skateboard, or wheelchair, might choose to use the ramp," he says.
