Dublin Footbridge

Dublin, Ireland
AC-CA Dublin Footbridge Competition - Top Honorable Mention

Can a bridge be a place itself rather than a path between two places?

Inspired by the Celtic knot, the pedestrian paths weave  across the river, flanked by undulating bicycle paths to create terraces in the created ‘eyelets’ between the paths. The bridge is a two-span truss bending/arch system composed of two intertwining triple chord trusses made of steel tubes that follow the meandering architectural paths. Each path supports one pedestrian path and one bike path. Pedestrian green space is framed into the main truss chords.
