The MX3D bridge project thus started as a visionary moonshot project, an artist’s dream. Several years later that dream has been solidified in the 3D printed stainless steel bridge. This fully functional pedestrian bridge for the city center of Amsterdam will be completed in 2018, to be placed at its final location soon after.
