FORM & FUNCTION:

EXPRESSION OF BEAUTY

 

THE GOAL OF THIS PROJECT WAS TO CREATE A BRIDGE AND TRANSFORM ITS ORIGINAL FORM TO CREATE A NEW FORM WITH A FUNCTION, WHICH IN THIS CASE INVOLVES OPENING A WATERWAY IN ORDER TO LET A 30 X 40 BOX THROUGH THE BRIDGE USING DIFFERENT MECHANICAL OBJECTS FOR INSPIRATION OF THE MOVEMENT. IN THE CASE OF MY BRIDGE WHICH STARTED OUT A SIMPLE TRUSS AND EVENTUALLY TRANSFORMED TO ACCOMMODATE A GEAR AND GEAR SHAFT ALONG WITH A PULLY SYSTEM.
