Bridges - here are 3 types of cool moving bridges

2016

 

There are more of course, but here is some background on the three we make

We have a sample of bridges here, with some You Tube video as well. A comprehensive web site about bridges and structures is Nicolas Janberg’s Structurae,  http://en.structurae.de/structures/stype/index.cfm?id=1. It is rather slow and cumbersome, but has a huge assortment of moving bridges from around the world.

For sure if you are studying bridge you have to visit the PBS site Building Big - a great place to have some interactive bridge fun (yes that is possible!) http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/buildingbig/bridge/


If you are studying bridges this site for students of Clifton State High School has excellent resources for teachers  and students! Well worth the time to explore! http://candjbaker.wix.com/mr-baker-bridge-page. Used by their students, but great information in the individual grades tabs for anyone studying bridges.

Here is a cool bridge in the Netherlands, some designer is having fun!

This is a very interesting footbridge in Paddington, in the UK. We will post plans for making a simple one here in the next while. We made a few in our studio.


Here is Heatherwick’s Studio video of their bridge:

A cool footbridge in London

OK it is not a bridge, but I thought it was cool and innovative.
