The Dynamic ShapeShifting Helix Bridge by sanzpont [arquitectura], Sergio Sanz Pont and Victor Sanz Pont, has won the latest DesignByMany challenge: “Building to Building Pedestrian Bridge”, sponsored by HP and media partner ArchDaily.
The challenge asked professionals and students in the architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) community to submit a proposal to design a pedestrian bridge between to two existing buildings.
The DSSH Bridge was chosen by a select group of judges, including: Andrea Graziano from DigitAG&, Ezra Groskin from Wilkinson Eyre Architects, and Robert Mencarini from SOM.
Located in Montreal, Canada the Dynamic ShapeShifting Helix Bridge is 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.
