One thought on “Engineer your own tool

  1. So much to consider with a bridge! How to design one to stay rather than break, where to attach it to land, how to support it, how to make it more helpful than harmful, and it looks like you encountered or thought about many of those challenges! Way to take on a very complex project!

    I hope you stay curious about how to better build things to connect people and places!
