DSSH Bridge - A Self-Sustainable Living Bridge. The soul of this design is to create self-sustainable living architecture that respond to its use. Modular + Flexible. The Module: Cylindrical Tensile Membrane + Double Helix Structure made of carbon fiber semi flexible tubes. This simple and flexible module can be repeated according to the desired length connecting two bu ildings forming a pedestrian connection. Structural Flexibility: The design of the bridge meets the structural flexibility of differential movement between the buildings. A connection between two independent structures cannot be rigid, so this bridge is structurally based on a tensile membrane.
Dynamic Reaction: Being a flexible tensile structure, by applying more tension to different points, a technological dynamic deformation can be achieved in response to the people crossing the bridge. It becomes a living element that responds to its use. Sustainable Design. Photovoltaic Energy: The tensile skin incorporates Foldable Photovoltaic Solar Panels capturing energy from the sun to generate and supply electricity from a clean and sustainable energy. This makes the bridge self-sustainable. Air-Cleaning Plants: To go beyond green, the design includes Plants that clean and purify the air, transforming the pollution of the city in pure oxygen. Plants and the Breathable Membrane make a greener environment and a c lean pedestrian tunnel. LED RGB Technology: Linear LED technology glow the structure of the bridge at night, creating art with light of low power consumption. This empha sizes the fluid and organic forms and creates different sensations. Sanzpont [arquitectura] is an international architecture office founded by the twin brothers Sergio and Victor Sanz Pont. Our design philosophy is based on a constant search for innovation, but always user-focused and with a great respect for the environment. Architecture must create a connection between the user and the city, between the site and the environment, and it must be useful, logical, beautiful and sustainable. The working methodology is fully three-dimensional with BIM technology. Such models contain a digital constructive database capable of generating any type of digital information depending on the current phase of the project, in a way that to progress in the development of a project, is to advance the level of detail of the model. Actually, we have 3 offices, forming a great design creative team, from Barcelona, Cancun and Chicago with Alvaro Licona society.
