London's rolling bridge
The curling - or rolling - bridge in Paddington Basin, London, is a unique design by Thomas Heatherwick. Instead of flipping open or turning sideways, as more conventional bridges do, this one curls into an octogonal roll to open and then uncurls again. This pedestrian bridge is a wonderful piece of architectural art. The bridge opens every Friday at noon. The concept could be used for all sorts of amazing things.
