DSSH Bridge by Sanzpont [Arquitectura]

Sanzpont [Arquitectura]Sergio Sanz Pont and Victor Sanz Pont — was recently awarded for its design proposal Infraestructure DSSH (for Dynamic ShapeShifting Helix) Bridge which consists of a flexible tensile Helix-shaped bridge which particularity is to be responsive to the users thanks to a technological dynamic structure. Sanzpont [Arquitectura], like the other participants, were required to design a "building to building pedestrian bridge". This competition was sponsored by HP and media partner ArchDaily.

The perforated tensile skin of this complex helix-shaped bridge is transparent with a pattern of circles that spreads out onto the surface of the skin. These circles allow circulation of air into the bridge. As for the transparency of the envelope, it facilitate diffusion of natural light inside the infrastructure.

This bridge is self-sustainable; it features plants and foldable photovoltaic solar panels that capture energy from the sun.

Plants act as air purifier reducing and eliminating the concentration of pollution and other contaminants in the city. With this system, Sanzpont [Arquitectura] created an effective energy-efficient bridge.

A LED RGB technology permits to highlight the bridge at night. This system provides a low power consumption. These LED lights vary in color — blue, red, pink, orange, yellow, green — creating elegant color effects.

The tensile skin incorporates foldable photovoltaic solar panels capturing energy from the sun to generate and supply electricity from a clean and sustainable energy.

This makes the bridge self-sustainable. The design includes Plants that clean and purify the air, transforming the pollution of the city in pure oxygen.

As the architects say, Plants and the Breathable Membrane aim at creating a greener environment and a clean pedestrian tunnel by embedding energy-saving and energy-generating systems into this bridge.
