In 1502 Leonardo da Vinci drew a bridge. "The Leonardo Bridge is an elegant, perfectly pressed-bow construction. Its principle is that the force of an arch can be distributed in wider spans when the foot of the arch is compensatorily widened and utilizes the tension provided by the counterforce of the terrrain. It was conceived 300 years prior to its engineering principal being generally accepted, proving da Vinci's genius as a technological innovator equal to his genius as an artist and visionary." 500 years later, The bridge is finally being constructed.
