Is it Das Slinky ?

The Slinky Springs Bridge in Oberhausen, Germany was completed in the summer of 2011. Based on designs by Frankfurt artist Tobias Rehberger, the funky bridge drew its inspiration from the iconic Slinky children’s toy. Rehberger captured the wild, fun qualities of the Slinky in his spiraling bridge across the Rhein-Herne-Kanal. The bridge was actually constructed by structural engineers Schlaich Bergmann out of 496 aluminium coils that span more than 400 meters. I only wonder why my pals Bo and Carolin didn’t tell me about this.
