The Solar Zigzag Footbridge by Jantzen studio

Sunday, March 6th, 2016

Article source: Jantzen studio

The Solar Zigzag Footbridge is a design proposal for a public functional art structure. The painted steel bridge is designed to span one hundred feet over a roadway, a stream, or a ravine. The structure is thirty-two feet tall, and eighteen feet wide. It is made from six overlapping triangular shaped steel trusses that are welded together and separated by a steel and wood planked walkway near the center, and a frame at the top that supports five large solar cell panels. The solar cell panels are used to generate electricity for the community in which the Solar Zigzag Footbridge is located, and to light the structure at night.

Footpaths and Overlook in the Quilotoa Lake – Shalalá by Jorge Andrade Benítez, Javier Mera Luna and Daniel Moreno Flores

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

Article source: Jorge Andrade Benítez, Javier Mera Luna and Daniel Moreno Flores

This Project starts with the acknowledgment of a conceptual challenge which structures the idea that generates the proposal: Which characteristics could an overlook have to be attractive even when all its natural surroundings offer interesting (and similar) views? This is due to the fact that the project is located in the top edge of the crater of an active volcano that has a lake inside of it, which creates multiple viewing opportunities along its surroundings.

Sohlbergplassen viewpoint in Stor-Elvdal, Norway by Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk AS

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

Article source: Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk AS

The Norwegian painter HaraldSohlberg (1869-1935) stayed in the Rondane mountain area for several years to do studies for his most famous work, Winter Night in the Mountains. The motif was a summation of sketches from several standpoints. The most recognisable position was close to where the viewpoint platform is built today.

Merchant Square footbridge in Grand Union Canal, England by Knight Architects

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

Article source: Knight Architects

Conceived by bridge specialists Knight Architects and structural engineers AKT II following a limited design competition in 2012, the 3m wide cantilevered Merchant Square footbridge spans 20m across the Grand Union Canal and is raised using hydraulic jacks with an action similar to that of a traditional Japanese hand fan. This creates a kinetic sculpture whose silhouette is both legible and extraordinary and which is well suited to the position on Sunset Terrace next to the canal.

River Hull Footbridge by McDowell+Benedett

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

Article source: McDowell+Benedett

Structure
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.

Footbridge Crossing L’Areuse in Neuchatel, Switzerland by GD Architectes FAS SIA

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Article source: Geninasca Delefortrie Architectes FAS SIA

When a place speaks, the most constructive reaction is to listen to it rather than to converse with it. The crossing of the Areuse at a precise point of the gauge was the demand.

The answer is this footbridge, an organic structure, ensuring a better echo with the site and the river. The objective power of this artefact holds in its ability the power to blend in perfectly with the site and get clearly noticed. There is no submission to the place but just respect.

Footbridge Over the River Marne in Meaux by DVVD

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

Article source: DVVD

I. SITE – CONTEXT

The footbridge links the centre of Meaux, more particularly the station, to Grand Ile, a medieval district located within a bend of the Marne. The decision to locate the bridge on the bend of the river allows it to provide a greater number of views, and increases the ways in which the structure can interact with its environment.

Water Purifying Footbridge in The Netherlands by Margot Krasojevic

Competition Amsterdam footbridge 2012 by Margot Krasojevic
Water management is still the most important function of Amsterdam canals. Without them, the city would drown. Circulating the water is also vital for sanitary reasons. In the days when windmills had to do the job, the stench of the water could become unbearable in periods with little wind or rain.

Three times a week, 14 of the 16 existing waterlocks around the city close up, so clean water can be pumped in from the big lake IJsselmeer. The current that is created pushes the dirty canal water out through the open locks on the other side of the city. Specialized cleaning boats with big scoops and nets patrol frequently clean surface debris. Since 2005, all the houseboats in the city are connected to the sewer system.

Footbridge over the River Segre in Lleida, Spain by Ravetllat Ribas Arquitectos

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Ravetllat Ribas Arquitectos

The footbridge seeks only to be a link between the two banks of the river Segre where it crosses the city of Lleida. Understood more as an itinerary than as a place in which to remain, the new footbridge at no time pretends to erase the perception of being suspended at a great height over the riverbed. This thought has led to an adjusted dimensioning that make compatible pedestrian and bicycle traffic with that of service vehicles. In this way, the crossing of the entire width of the river is solved with two single pillars and no other support.

Arganzuela Footbridge in Madrid, Spain by Dominique Perrault Architecture

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Article source: Dominique Perrault Architecture

The burying underground of the highway that ran along the edges of the Manzanares river provided the opportunity to open up a new urban territory to the inhabitants of Madrid: the Manzanares Park. A series of bridges over the river will allow passage from one side of the park to the other. Designed to link the neighborhoods on the right and left banks of the river, the Arganzuela Footbridge will be the longest of all the bridges to be built. The bridge will be for both pedestrians and cyclists.
