  1. pier arch

    A pier arch, also known as a pontoon arch, is a type of architectural structure often used in bridges where the load-bearing arches are built into a solid pier or abutment, rather than standing alone with space in between. This design helps to distribute the weight of the structure more evenly, making it more stable and resilient.
