While known widely as a painter, Leonardo da Vinci was also an architect and engineer who designed many buildings and machines for patrons during his life. This bridge, designed by Leonardo to be quick to build and take down, would have been used for swift movement of troops over rivers, critical to battle success for the armies of the time. With precise grooves in the pieces, it is easy to construct - and strong, even without glue! A simple and elegant design, this bridge is a reminder of the brilliance Leonardo brought to solve the many engineering issues of the day.
