-FINALIST of Amsterdam Cycling Bridge Competition
The main concept of the bridge is to create adventure experience to the bicyclist. Give the bicyclist a mystery doubt about the bridge and found out what is inside the bridge. The idea was inspired by the fidget spinner combined with the coral reef to create the shape of the bridge. And create the float format on the river, provided an efficiency space for the bicyclist to experience. The other main idea is to engage the existing site context. Reconnection the existing site and the green area of the site. For the function, there are five different function of the bridge. Below the river level, there are 2 level of parking/storage of the bicycles. Above the river level: first floor will be the café area for the bicyclist stop by and enjoy the views of the Amsterdam. Second floor will the public park with a beautiful waterfall and siting area for the bicyclist want to rest and enjoy the view. The Roof will be the place for wind turbine to generator the energy for the use the bridge (self-sustainable). The bridge will folding when the big ship come through.
