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.

ACADEMIA Bridge in Venice, Italy by ///byn

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

Article source: ///byn

Canaletto understood Venice as a timeless place composed from exceptions. Inspired by the artisan tradition of glass, we searched the possibility of creating a transparent glass structure made solid though the geometry of every piece and the union between them. The structural design is based on two concentric skins that linked by circulation elements make a structural arch. The circulation paths modify the geometry of the bridge giving an asymmetrical position on top of the Grand Canal.
