Paris needs more tourist traps, more snags on our attention and ticklers of our fancy. Are we really going to “ooh” and “lala” over that cagey Eiffel tower? To fill the need for a reason to visit gay Paris, Archtriumph is sponsoring a contemporary bridge design competition, and the most interesting one at this point is a 130,000 foot trampoline bridge by which pedestrians could take flight and hop across the River Seine.

“I got jumped at Paris” the tourist shirts might read. The unit would be constructed of three giant lifebuoy-type inflatable modules, slung together with cords and tramp mesh, all strategically couched not too far from the Eiffel Tower. Million of pedestrians would get an extra little spring in their step as they crossed the famous river.

“It appears to us that Paris has the ridges and passages necessary for the flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic across its waterways,” said AZC architecture firm on its website, “Our intention is to invite its visitors and inhabitants to engage on a newer and more playful path across this same water.”

The bridge would be seconding the existing Pont de Bir-Hakeim. Because of the nature of the projected bridge, the wheelchair-bound might be barred, if not grandpas and grandmas all around, and if that’s not complaint enough, just consider the sections on “funniest home videos” that demonstrate trampolines gone awry. Millions of passengers a day on a giant trampoline could have disastrous results.
