Bridges are immensely important. Bridges also allow people and communities to connect together, allowing better understanding of different people’s beliefs and cultures. This has helped made us more accepting and there is less prejudice, violence and war in the world because of this. Maybe one day we’ll soar over buildings on hoverboards or teleport through space and time, but until then bridges have their importance. Sean Dean (Bridge designer,University of Oxford)
