-FINALIST of Amsterdam Cycling Bridge Competition

 

In the preliminary conception of the design scheme, we contacted the Dutch fishery as the inspiration to analyze the shape of fish to get the architectural concept. The hexagonal pipe is used as the unit piece, and the six sides are controlled to protrude according to sin function curve to form different fin parts (including viewing platform X2, support column X3, wind turbine blade x1). Then the function curve is used to control the scaling and torsion of each unit piece to form the shape of spiral fish.

Considering the influence of the bridge on the cross-strait traffic, we analyze the crowded areas of the streets on both sides through space syntax, and select the starting point of the bridge as reasonable as possible. The path is calculated by the wool algorithm, and then the bridge body is fitted with the element. In this process, in order to meet the requirements of riding gradient and channel height, we designed two gradient paths for people to choose (6% of the riding lane and 18% of the sidewalk). Bicycle elevators were set up on 18% of the ramp

This bridge comes from the concept of fishery, and beautifies the urban space by displaying the Dutch fishery culture. At the same time, the top fishfin shaped fan uses the wind from the channel to generate electricity, providing clean energy for the city and educating the people on the bridge. It’s going to be a landmark for Amsterdam.
