Moses bridge by RO&AD Architecten @Halsteren, Netherlands. The bridge allows access to Fort de Roovere, a 17th century fortress surrounded by a moat. It can’t be seen from a distance because the water comes all the way up to its edge. When you get closer, the fortress opens up to you through a narrow trench. You can then walk up to its gates like Moses on the water.
Found here and here.
