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 fulfill functionalism with 'utilitas', 'venustas', and 'firmitas' as one of the classic goal in architecture.

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 curved path, and the rhythmic fish bone arch and trusses. The back and forth play between form and function established a name, call pleasure.
