The bridge's elegant arc based on da Vinci's 1502 "Golden Horn" design, is roughly 30 feet long and anchors an exhibition highlighting the "fragile beauty" of polar regions. The bridge was built entirely out of water frozen in a custom build aluminum form. 

Norwegian artist Vebjorn Sand brought the fresh water to New York to replicates another span he built on a glacier in Antarctica a year ago which he hopes will never melt. Read more.
