Bridge Designs That Emphasize Natural Surroundings

Seeking to update the way bridges can be used, these interesting ideas may be worlds apart in their designs but they have one thing in common – creativity.

The Cloudbridge is a concept design by Arturo Tedeschi and Maurizio Arturo Degni.

This project aims to create a structure that fits into its surroundings without complete disruption of the landscape. The Cloudbridge’s linking system connects the ends to natural structures, like mountains, by way of a non-linear path and lattice network which aids the stability.

This notion would make the bridge seem like it was floating between its adjacent landmarks.

This engineering concept may seem too futuristic and far-fetched but if actually structurally stable, it would be a way to connect transport in unreachable areas, like mountainous regions and other inaccessible places. It is also pretty interesting to look at.

Another bridge idea that was brought to life and has been exhibited as part of a natural art display is the Garden of 10,000 Bridges. Designed by West 8 Urban Design and Landscape Architecture, the team of landscape and garden architects created the expansive display.

According to the artists, the bridges and garden are also representative of the human path in life, and the artful presentation is meant to magnify the human story. The bridges stand for life’s unremitting twists of ups and downs and the natural immensity in which we exist, thus the expansive garden area.

According to the team:

Gardens tell a story. They combine poetry and narrative. The Garden of 10,000 Bridges represents the human life; the path of people’s lifetime, which is a route of uncertainty and burden, but also of highlights and elation. The garden design takes you on this walk of life as a meandering, winding trail – continuous and like a labyrinth. It lets you find your way through nature and takes you over 10,000 bridges.

All images of the Garden of 10,000 Bridges are from West 8.
