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.
