    Bridge in Esch / Metaform Architects And T6-Ney & Partners



    Architecture: Metaform Architects
    Location: Esch, Alzette, Luxembourg
    Length: 150 mt
    Structural engineering: T6-Ney&partners
    Lighting conception: Speirs and Major Associates
    Contractor: CDC s*rl & Cie Secs
    Project year: 2008 – 2009
    Photographs: Steve Troes Fotodesign



    Pedestrian Bridge in Esch/Alzette (the second largest city in Luxembourg). The idea was to create a direct connection between the heart of the city and the green space (Park of Galgenberg).





    The single volume is characterized by an uncluttered and minimalist design philosophy. The volume gesture clearly contrasts with the chaotic environment (overhead lines, power lines, boulevard, bus platforms and trains, roundabouts etc). The aesthetic of the project makes this bridge unique and creates a strong image for the station area.

    Paik Nam June Media Bridge / Planning Korea



    Architect: Planning Korea
    Location: Seoul, Korea
    Bridge length: 1,080m
    Pier height: 18m
    Maximum arch height: 72.5m
    Maximum width: 89m
    Total floor area: 103,620m2
    Area for road: 18,190m2
    Area for building: 85,430m2
    Program: Driveway, Pedestrian/Bicycle Road, Tourism/Shopping & Relaxation Facilities, The Han River Museum, Public library for teenagers, IT complex mall, Cruise ship dock & parking facilities



    Korean creative director Byung Ju Lee of Planning Korea announced a new paradigm in bridgecalled ‘Paik Nam June Media Bridge’ in Seoul, Korea. Connecting Dangi-li Power Plant (which has a plan to be redeveloped into public cultural space) in the north and The National Assembly Building in the south, this bridge shows the first example of ‘a city expanded to the river’. Similar to the Thames River and the Seine River, the Han River in Seoul crosses the center of a city, however is of a much larger scale. There are almost 30 bridges over the Han River, but most of them were made of steel and concrete construction. Paik Nam June Media Bridge approaches the concept of crossing the Han River in a more sculptural, futuristic, and eco-friendly way. Inspired by the water strider, the overall shape is organic, with a sleek streamlined outline. This mega structure bridge is covered with solar panels to generate energy by itself, and totals a length of 1080m.







    This bridge has the capability to accommodate cars, pedestrians, and bicycles. People can enjoy a public museum and library with the latest IT technology. In addition, water taxis, yachts and cruise ships can dock at the base of the bridge. The sustainable green space over the bridge is a circulated vertical and horizontal garden. The gardens would utilize the local resources, for example river and rain water along with natural light and ventilation. To celebrate world famous video/media artist Nam June Paik, the whole skin of the bridge can be used as a canvas for media and video artist all over the world. This project is currently in progress of being reviewed to be developed as a BTL (Build-Transfer-Lease) project.

    Speirs + major and wilkinson eyre: Twin Sails bridge



    Title: twin sails bridge
    Location: poole, UK
    Completion date: 09 march 2012
    Lighting design: speirs + major
    Client: borough of pool
    Architect: wilkinson eyre
    Electrical engineer: ramboll (previously giffords)
    Main contractor: hochtief (uk) construction ltd
    Electrical contractor: IES

    UK-based speirs + major have recently completed the lighting design for the 'twin sails bridge' in poole, united kingdom completed by london-based wilkinson eyre architects. The horizontal form takes its influence from the sea, horizon and sky. Illuminations line the structural ribs by accentuating the reflections of the water.



    Functional lanterns for the road, cycle paths and pedestrian walkways are integrated into the vehicle galvanized steel barriers and handrails. a wave-form art screen made of stainless steel bars separates the foot traffic from the roadway with a red LED glowing underneath to allow for way-finding across the span.



    When the bridge is open, the diagonal connection at the center of the deck separates to create two triangular sails. During the evening, the gateway generates a dramatic transformation to brighten the area. in an animated sequence the white light of the pedestrian walkway turns to red which begins from the top of the wing descending downward. in this state, the structure heightens the anticipation of entry, creating an event that the community can witness and be a part of. The carbon fiber masts emphases its verticality structure which is capped with a glowing section of frosted acrylic containing an ivory LED.



    The harbor master was consulted with regards to the lighting technologies and luminaries to reduce spill and glare. life time and easy maintenance were high priorities for the illumination of the bridge. Structural agents were designed for the under deck so it can be rotated and pulled back in their place for up keep.



    Specialized fluorescent lamps for the road ensure no disruption to output to the cold temperature of the winter months. The entire structure is controlled by a time clock and photocell, with a direct link to the mechanical operating system to ensure the evening animation is synchronized with the opening of the bridge.

    Henderson waves bridge



    Photo By: Alvin|nivlA

    Admire the beautiful skyline as you stroll across this 274 metre-long pedestrian bridge that spans Henderson Road to connect Mount Faber Park to Telok Blangah Hill Park. At 36m above Henderson Road, Henderson Waves is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore.

    The bridge has a unique wave-form made up of seven undulating curved steel "ribs" that alternately rise over and under its deck. The curved "ribs" form alcoves that function as shelters with seats within and also to accommodate large number of people during public events.



    Slats of yellow balau wood, an all-weather timber found in South-East Asia, are used in the decking. Look out for carvings on the slats marking the height you are at on various points along the bridge.

    During the day, one can enjoy the habour views while standing on the 12-storey high bridge. Beyond the bridge, it provides one with a soothing mood while meandering through the forest walk and the earth trails

    The bridge takes on a different look at night, with the wave-form illuminated with attractive LED light from 7pm to 2am daily.
