The 14 bridges are a recognizable family serving as connecting elements in the park. They range in length from 9 to 112 meters. a Large curved floating pier is also part of the family. In order to achieve a variable design and a slim appearance, the hight needed for the railing is used as a constructive element. The bridge deck is hung between them. The principle for the steel truss is the "lattice girder". The nature of this beam is the extraordinary slender profiling. Only in places of great stress, there is material compaction. This gives a image of a dense grid with a varying light pattern, not only the constructive logic seems to standout but also the aesthetic. Where necessary, the grid grows into supports. Between the trusses is a light bridge-deck, designed as steel-concrete floor. There are also two adventure bridges; a suspension bridge and a bridge with only one railing. Through the lattice structure the bridges get a rustic character that fits the landscape-park Meerland.
