MOVABLE BRIDGE UPON NAVIGLIO MARTESANA
“Only those who attempt the absurd…will achieve the impossible. I think …I think it’s in my basement…Let me go upstairs and check.”
The idea of the our movable bridge wants to get easy the crossing over the naviglio for pedestrians and cyclists without creating architectonical barriers for the navigability of the stream and for all kind of users. Different forms and configurations change in reason to different users and scenarios. When the bridge is fixed (flat configuration) every person and cyclist can go across fast and without problem. When the bridge is moved up (arched configuration) the passage is permitted for the boats. Structurally speaking, the arch of the bridge is divided in seven identical parts linked with hinge elements.
