Poetic Footbridge

A project of construction form.

Physical Model


Computer Modeling
Hand Sketches

We were required to design a poetic and aesthetically pleasing footbridge across the lake in tropical garden UTM.

To explore the tectonic in the structure, and to design a structure which fulfills functionalism with 'utilitas', 'venustas', and 'firmitas' as one of the classic goals in architecture.

A structure is a source of wonder, formed by movements and acting of forces to invite a sense of equilibrium and static.

From the staggered abutment to the prolonged journey through a curved path, and the rhythmic fish bone arch and trusses. 

The back and forth play between form and function established a name, call pleasure.
