We all know that a thick stack of paper, like a phone book, is stronger than a single sheet, but what would happen if you were to strategically place thousands of sheets of paper together into an arch? Conceivably, you could make a bridge capable of supporting real weight.
As part of their 45th anniversary celebration, Land Rover commissioned artist Steve Messam to do just that. Messam created a five meter bridge in Suzhou, China which was strong enough to support a Range Rover.
This is not like the origami they teach in preschool!
