During the reconstruction of the Dutch fort XVII century, the architects faced a trivial task. They had to throw across the moat, which is surrounded by ramparts, a much-needed bridge for tourists, but to design its structure so that the replica was virtually invisible.

Moses Bridge, a bridge that is named of Moses, before which according to legend, the waters were divided the Red Sea, designed by Dutch office Ro & Ad Architecten. The bridge was built in Monument Fort De Roovere. According to Inhabitat, the project Ro & Ad deserves attention not only because of the originality of design, but also because of the innovative material that was used in construction. This Accoya – modified wood, which took acetylation, a number of other treatments and become due to this “most durable” (lifetime up to 50 years). Association of Dutch Architects recognized the “Bridge of Moses’ best structure in 2011. In addition, the sponsors were among the finalists for Dutch Design Awards 2011 – the jury considered it a brilliant idea.
