Qingdao Wanda Victoria Bay Xifeng Bridge in China, Landscape Design by PT Landscape

Sunday, May 13th, 2018

Article source: PT Landscape

The concept of Xifeng Bridge is the spread-open wings of a phoenix, which is an auspicious bird and a symbol of peace and harmony. The ancients believed that phoenix would fly over if the world is in peace and prosperity. The oracle of “Feng” is like the oracle of wind, meaning the omnipresent and spiritual power of wind.”Huang” is pronounced like the “Emperor” in Chinese, meaning the supreme power. Therefore, phoenix is also the symbol of Chinese imperial power, and is usually paired with dragon, which is a symbol of lucky and harmony.

Golden Garland in Tiel, the Netherlands by wUrck

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

Article source: wUrck 

The “Golden Garland” (K.G. Zochernrug) is a bridge in Tiel that strengthens the route from the shopping area to the city center. The bridge crosses the water diagonally and forms the best possible visual and functional connection between the embankments. By defining the entrance to the city the Garland plays the role of a “city gate”. In an elegant gesture the bridge invites people into the city.

Cycling & Pedestrian track Lotus Flower in Massarosa, Italy by MICROSCAPE architecture urban design AA

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

 

Article source: MICROSCAPE architecture urban design AA

The area covered by the project is part of the northern basin of the lake Massacciuccoli; until the 40s of the twentieth century the area was occupied by the cultivation of rice, then replaced in the late ’60s by the Lotus’ Flowers – today one of the largest camp in Europe. The site was in a state of decay and neglected and the public use was denied. Today with the new pedestrian and cycling path it brings to the light a true “environmental jewel” that opens a new scenario in an area unfortunately largely deteriorated by urbanization strongly pervasive and of poor quality. The Cycling & pedestrian track “Lotus Flower”, in its length of 1km, connects the train station of Bozzano to the centre of Massarosa and it is an integral part of the system of the regional cycling routes dedicated to Giacomo Puccini and places related to his life.

The Pedestrian Skywalk in Delhi, India by Chaukor Studio

Thursday, October 5th, 2017

Article source: Chaukor Studio

The development of various public transport modes in the metropolitan city of Delhi like railway line, Delhi metro, bus stops and auto-rickshaw stands has increased the number of pedestrians on the roads. Due to no proper walking space for the pedestrians on most of the major road junctions in the city, the intersection of the vehicular traffic with the pedestrians causes a call for alarm towards the safety of the people.

Is there an eco-friendly approach to address this problem without further compromising the safety of pedestrians and also help in revitalizing the city?

Revolving Sail Bridge in Eerduosi Shi, China by Margot Krasojević Architects

Friday, September 1st, 2017

Article source: Margot Krasojević Architects

The design proposal is for a pedestrian bridge commissioned by the Ordos government to cross the Wulanmulun River, located in Ordos city, Kangbashi district Mongolia.

The bridge consists of a main floating section which gives buoyant support to three expanding walkways, and a carbon fiber triple sail which is raised and lowered by the buoyancy rotator. The bridge is a flexible structure that can relocate by sailing along the river to its new position. To do so, it folds into multiple sections that stack into each other.

A New Viaduct for the MIL Campus of the University of Montreal in Canada by civiliti

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Article source: civiliti

A simple viaduct, located at the entrance of the University of Montréal’s future campus, creates a unique visual and spatial happening.

In forthcoming years, the University of Montréal, one of the city’s major institutions, will be opening a second campus located on a former railway yard.

Existing tracks had to be relocated in order to accommodate the new facilities and a new viaduct was built over the campus’ future access road. The site was dug to allow the underpass, then bermed up slightly to accommodate the 24-metre steel bridge structure. The reinforced concrete abutments extend into zigzagging retaining walls, creating a dynamic mineral landscape.
