Bridge over the Vlaardingervaart, originally uploaded by Theo Lagendijk.

The bridge’s strong three-dimensional character not only adds to the design’s expressiveness, but also has functional purposes. Made of square steel elements it twists on a horizontal axis, and the constantly changing sections are the perfect format to absorb vibrations, thus reinforcing the bridge’s movement, when a cyclist crosses.

The bridge was designed by West 8 Architects with structural engineers ABT — via Amusing Planet
