Living Bridge, Groningen

B_motion-the living bridge is an open competition on urban extenstion of Groningen, The Netherlands, by local Municipal Corporation. Project demonstrates an associated system of correlations that allows deviations. Intricate correlation between whole to parts build morphology at all levels. Qualitative shifts are carried forward to detail articulation.

Based on data collection, an urban simulation is made find transport solutions and form generation (point cloud). Parametric model is built on point cloud to generate geometry. A 300 meter long bicycle bridge and 100 meter high tower is designed that house residential, social, commercial activities. Bridge is not limited to bicycle; it also has super market, souvenir shops and offices.
