Entry Description

A Self-Sustainable Living Bridge.
The soul of this design is to create self-sustainable living architecture that respond to its use.
Modular + Flexible. The Module:
Cylindrical Tensile Membrane + Double Helix Structure made of carbon fiber semi flexible tubes. This simple
and flexible module can be repeated according to the desired length connecting two buildings forming a
pedestrian connection.
Structural Flexibility:
The design of the bridge meets the structural flexibility of differential movement between the buildings. A
connection between two independent structures cannot be rigid, so this bridge is structurally based on a
tensile membrane.
Dynamic Reaction:
Being a flexible tensile structure, by applying more tension to different points, a technological dynamic
deformation can be achieved in response to the people crossing the bridge. It becomes a living element that
responds to its use.
Sustainable Design. Photovoltaic Energy:
The tensile skin incorporates Foldable Photovoltaic Solar Panels capturing energy from the sun to generate
and supply electricity from a clean and sustainable energy. This makes the bridge self-sustainable.
Air-Cleaning Plants:
To go beyond green, the design includes Plants that clean and purify the air, transforming the pollution of
the city in pure oxygen. Plants and the Breathable Membrane make a greener environment and a clean
pedestrian tunnel.
LED RGB Technology:
Linear LED technology glow the structure of the bridge at night, creating art with light of low power
consumption. This emphasizes the fluid and organic forms and creates different sensations.

Our design philosophy is based on a constant search for innovation, but always user-focused and with a great respect for the environment.
