#world’s strangest bridges ☞
todays topic is smart constructions, and specifically bridges. Architects around the world, given a landscape or a town problem come out with extraordinary ideas on designing innovative and some times really impressive constructions. Evolution on materials used, as well as design software BUMP up the level ..leading to ^top shelf^ results.
Its nice to have in mind, and extra appreciate constructions made by architects for their hometown, and how they try to fit their designs to the country’s culture or from locals thinking view.
Having some comments from Architect Donald MacDonald, here is the first part of Innovative Bridges aroung the world.. Enjoy
1)Rolling Bridge-London-Heatherwick Studios
This bridge represents an experimental gesture, and it’s really complicated for what it does.
2)Henderson Waves – Singapore
3)Sundial bridge – California
The deck’s truss bears the bulk of the bridge’s load, while the cables appear slack compared with those of other bridges.
4)Juscelino Kubitschek Bridge – Brasilia
Architect Alexandre Chan, who designed the bridge:”I wanted to avoid straight lines on the deck in order to accentuate Brasilia’s striking sunsets.”
5)Millau Viaduct – France
What is unusual is to have the towers taper in both directions as they rise.
6)Pony Gustave – Flaubert –France
Using twin roadways allows more sunlight to penetrate the water under the bridge, an important consideration for the river’s ecosystem.
7)Langkawi Sky Bridge – Malaysia
One of the highest elevated single-stay bridges in the world.
Stay Tuned for Part II
