The project bridgingMZAMBA arose out of the desire of the local Xhosa for having a safe crossing over the river Mzamba in South Africa. In the rainy season, the whole community is cut off from necessary infrastructure, health care and general food supply and kids have already drowned on their way to school. The design and implementation of this bridge is the diploma thesis of T. Harlander & F. Anzenberger and was build in South Africa in cooperation with the NGO buildcollective. Given the difficult accessibility of the valley, all pieces had to be carried manually and assembled on site, together with local residents.
