Description

The Bridge is an ambition to organically blend a space frame structure into pedestrian infrastructure. The core idea of the Project has been to design a lightweight bridge that generates a carbon-negative construction footprint. Destined to become a notable public space, the concept of the footbridge includes the promotion of green construction and LEED principles. Custom modifications done in Dynamo facilitated the Autodesk Revit 2019 design process making the bridge perfectly fit into urban architecture. Structurally, the pedestrian bridge design is uncomplicated but rigid and sustainable which has been proved during computational analysis. Finite Element Analysis, aerodynamics cross-flow velocity, and cross-flow pressure demonstrated the design viability.
