Fractal Bridge

 Look look look it's a fractal bridge!  See how the underside is a thick curving branch that splits into smaller branches reaching upward that eventually flatten out to become the upper surface of the bridge.  It is based on designs found in nature.  It is an awesome bridge.  Also it is build by a giant robot, but I am more intrigued by the infrastructure.  That bridge is built to last.  It will be very hard to damage.  Its design is resistant to pressure from above but also lets air or water pass through to avoid building up sideways pressure.  I am a great big fangeek when it comes to nature-inspired engineering.
