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.
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.
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.
