While thinking up architectural designs for a short film set in the future, I came up with this design for a bridge. I do admit it’s a bit overkill with the tall tension support, but I was going for an a-symmetrical design.
If you have suggestions to make it seem less OP, please leave a comment!
(I’m not an actual architect, but I like to dabble in designs, so if it looks really not practical from an architectural standpoint, I’d love to hear about it!)
What is the meaning of this “OP”?
Over Powered haha
That’s what I thought, but then I thought it might be “out of place”.
Don’t know much about bridges but I think you might be breaking implicit suspension bridge laws is why is looks odd.
Well, the first is that they do not usually appear asymmetrical, but I like your idea for the future theme.
The main one, I thought is that there is no overlap in the supports/tethers. Normally they would meet in the middle, but with one higher maybe meet 3/4 along the bridge.
Actually I found one like yours: https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-10-02/long-beach-gerald-desmond-bridge.
Oh cool! thanks for sharing the link!
