Morphology and Urban Planning of a Pedestrian Bridge

The aim of the paper is to discuss a practical application in bridge architecture of a non-standard structural system derived from a geometrical generative process. Through the rotation of a rectangle along a given path over a gap a tube like structure is formed. The pseudo-shell of the tube is shaped by connecting corners of the consecutive iterations of the rotated rectangle directly and diagonally. The strengths of the concept are analyzed and proven from a geometrical, urban, structural, economical and ecological points of view
