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.

The structure consists of a steel spine cantilevering around from a 3-dimensional braced ring structure approximately 16m in diameter. The spine is a hybrid structure with the ‘root’ section conceived as a diagrid/shell structure and the tip as a shell structure. Steel plates clad the surface of the walkways whilst horizontal bracing provides additional longitudinal stiffness.
