Bridge in Taiwan
Our aim was to recover the plastic and even, so to speak, sculptural aspect, that bridges have had in the past. And we say sculptural in order to avoid the pure and inert characterless design that characterizes the majority of current examples.
The strategic location of the bridge was reason enough to turn away from a purely mathematical-economic design that would avoid the issues of form, leading to a generic proposal with no capacity to act as a landmark in the landscape.
The design explores how to create variety from extreme simplicity. Taking the simplest geometric shape, the circle, as a starting point, and using mechanisms as simple as repetition and change of scale, we achieved variety and dynamism.
