Juhana Marttinen Architects / Projects / Parkway iconic bridge with Markus Wikar

The Parkway iconic bridge is a pedestrian overpass bridge for the Sheffield Parkway road. The bridge is a continuous multiple arch type steel bridge. The bridge is illuminated by translucent glass spheres at the ends of thin steel rods gently swaying in the wind. The placing of the rods on the surface of the bridge was done by a Rhinoscript program written by Markus Wikar.
