Combining these requirements, a successful bridge design must be natural, simple, original and harmonious with its surroundings. A bridge is usually a large and very visible structure in its vicinity. It should look natural and fit well into the landscape. It should also be simple and not look superficial. A structure looks more natural if it can convey an understandable impression to the general public about how it works. Uniqueness is an important factor in any piece of art. Likewise, each bridge should be unique in itself.

But, the maximum possible spans are way beyond what we are building nowadays. The maximum span depends mainly on the allowable stresses we can have in the construction materials we use.
