Open Conceptual Competition - YA STUDIO - SHORTLISTED - 2020

A floating transparent vessel forming an urban plaza, embedded gently within the cityscape, creating an underwater microcosmos.

The construction of the bridge borrows from shipbuilding structural design principles, allowing it to float ─ the water surface acting as its structural support.

The bridge space is defined not by a built facade but rather by its transparent sides allowing the surrounding water to define the space.

The bridge, as a single rigid unit, pivots sideways, opening the entire width of the waterway [37.7 m according to the brief!] for marine traffic yet it continues to serve as a buzzing, vibrant space when its function as a bridge is suspended due to marine traffic.
