Habitable bridge

Public buildings

Hybrid

Complex site—a motorway and a road crossing at a 30 degrees angle, with a skyscraper on its southern side and a little heritage building on the northern side—was to house a mixed use building with a gallery, a bar, a golf practice, a chapel and apartments. The project also had to include a pedestrian bridge above the road.  The need to connect different topographical levels suggested the structure and form of the building as an amalgamation of bridges wrapping around the motorway.
