Bridges: Materials, Designs and Expression

This studio was about expressing our ideas for a bridge, both architecturally and structurally. We did some case studies on some existing bridges and then each student was given a certain type of bridge to design. We had to design the bridges on our own and make 3D (software) models and physical models of the same. The finalized design of the bridges was also analyzed in structural software to check its stability and strength.
