In 1502 Leonardo da Vinci did a simple drawing of a graceful bridge with a huge span of 240 meters. It was a design commissioned by Sultan Bajazet II to span the Golden Horn, an inlet at the mouth of the Bosporus River in what is the modern nation of Turkey. It was never built. When Vebjørn Sand saw the design in an exhibition on da Vinci’s engineering genius in 1996, he was overwhelmed by the beauty of the design. His great gift to the people of Norway was his ability to communicate this vision to the public sector.
