Ca(pa)ble Bridge

The Capable Bridge project tasked students from TU Delft’s Archineering program with designing and constructing a sustainable bridge, fostering sustainable exchange through circular timber design. This project provided a practical challenge for students to explore the intersection of architecture and engineering with environmental sustainability.

Analysis of the Mathematical Bridge by William Etheridge: Students analyzed the Mathematical Bridge, designed by William Etheridge, to understand its structural principles and aesthetic elements, gaining insights for their own design process.

Analysis of the Peitan Bridge (Wind and Rain Bridge) by 70 HKU Architecture Students: Students also examined the Peitan Bridge, constructed by 70 HKU Architecture students, to explore innovative approaches to bridge architecture, considering cultural, environmental, and functional aspects.

Poster of the Häxhala Bridge Design: A poster showcases the Haxhala Bridge design, providing a glimpse into the conceptualization and initial design stages, highlighting key features and design considerations.

Off_Plane Bridge: Displayed on the page is the Off_Plane Bridge, showcasing the design and construction of the second bridge developed by the students. Accompanying the bridge is a booklet detailing its components and construction process, along with photographs illustrating its features.

Ca(pa)ble Bridge: Another poster displays the final design of the Capable Bridge, emphasizing its innovative features, sustainable materials, and structural integrity. Additionally, a separate booklet offers detailed insights into the individual parts of the bridge’s construction.
