Passerella nella Valle dei Templi in Agrigento, Italy by COTTONE+INDELICATO ARCHITECTS

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Article source: COTTONE+INDELICATO ARCHITECTS

The walkway is designed as a sculptural element that integrates with the enchanting context of the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, and establishes a dialogue with it that draws inspiration from the landscape and architectural features of the place.
The main purpose of the pedestrian walkway is to restore unity to the location of the archaeological park, divided by crossing the state road 118; and allow for safe enjoyment of the park, giving visitors the perception of this as a unique and organic.

BOUNCING BRIDGE in Paris, France by Atelier Zündel Cristea

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

Article source: Atelier Zündel Cristea

URBAN GATHERING

With the growth of « World Cities » in the 1990’s, the contemporary notion of the Urban Gathering was born. Its essential characteristic is the creation of a specific urban sense of time through a scheduled series of varied ephemeral events. This « event urbanism » exists as part of the increasing competition between capital cities, seeking to attract and maintain highly mobile professional classes and to satisfy more stable populations with novel practices of urban space.

Yusuhara Wooden Bridge Museum in Kochi Prefecture, Japan by KENGO KUMA & ASSOCIATES

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

Article source: KENGO KUMA & ASSOCIATES

This is a plan to link two public buildings with a bridge-typed facility, which had been long separated by the road in between. The museum technically bridges communications in this area. It functions not only as a passage between the two facilities but also as an accommodation and workshop, ideal location for artist-in-residence programs. In this project, we challenged a structural system which composes of small parts, referring to cantilever structure often employed in traditional architecture in Japan and China. It is a great example of sustainable design, as you can achieve a big cantilever even without large-sized materials.

Lingzidi Bridge in Shangzhou, China by Rural Urban Framework (RUF)

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Article source: Rural Urban Framework (RUF)

As part of the country’s urbanisation scene, China’s infrastructure construction leads to myriad consequences that significantly impact not only the economic conditions of the respective locality, but also its existing social matrices. One example, highway infrastructure, undoubtedly brings to remote areas increased accessibility and new employment opportunities. Yet at the same time, this top-down planning approach often overlooks the specific needs of the local area. Construction of a new highway in southern Shaanxi Province required the destruction of hundreds of local bridges. This project involves the design of a pedestrian bridge in Lingzidi Village to service the disrupted network.
