Sustainable Living Architecture

Small footbridges in North East India made of tree roots.  


Designed to grow over rivers that are uncrossable during the monsoon rains, these bridges will last for centuries.  The locals guide the roots by strapping them to rocks, branches, and bamboo stalks so the roots grow in a specific direction.  Some are many centuries old making this a great example of sustainable living architecture that will grow for generations.
