Footbridge in La Roche Sur Yon, France by Bernard Tschumi and Hugh Dutton

Friday, February 18th, 2011

The arrival of the high-speed train in the city is considered an important event and an expression of an image of modernisation. The new bridge replaces an existing one that is a standard railway bridge design that can be found all over France. This bridge type was contemporary with and inspired by the work of Eiffel. It involves the using lateral beams composed of a diagonal mesh of small plate strips that are riveted together.

The design of the new bridge uses the same language of a diagonal mesh, but in a tubular from, to create a complete cylindrical volume through hich the users pass. Footbridges over railways require lateral protection for safety of both the users and the trains below. The complete volume provides a single structural solution that possesses the necessary inertia to span between the available support points as well as provide support for the required protective screens and a canopy cover.

THE CROWD IN THE CLOUD in Greater Noida, Delhi, India by Vlado Valkof

Friday, February 18th, 2011

Our project responds to the context which is planned to be build by the time the project is completed, and to the dynamically twisted site. Our attempt is to increase density and pedestrian traffic. We strongly believe that high-rise typology is an oxymoron of sustainable development in its base and is in contradiction with promoter’s goal for a green complex. From the program we identify five major functions: Research Institute and Knowledge Centre, Offices and Incubation Centre, Hotel, Residential, and Retail-Food-Beverage. We clearly differentiate four of them in four wings grouped around two inner courts in two separate buildings (Research Institute and Offices in one building and Hotel and Residential in the other). At the area of conjunction of the two buildings we design outdoor distributing hub/plaza/promenade which connects to all functions and the underground parking garage.
