Description

Description


Considering the location of this bridge in one of the cultural and academic axes of Tehran and being close to lots of cultural and educational buildings, especially the “college (Alborz) school” where the bridge got its name from, the main design concept is based on the forms, used in the architecture of this area. Based on studies and surveys there were two types of perpendicular movements on and under this bridge which the design not only shouldn’t interrupt them but also should ease and direct them. Merging the formal concept, conformity with the neighborhood cultural architecture and the connecting role of the bridge with its T shaped columns, creates the arched shaped form that holds the columns and also covers them at the same time.

This form repeats long the Bridge and strengthens the perpendicular movements around the bridge. The arches also make 2 types of zones under the bridge (one in the middle and tow on the edges) which create the opportunity to organize temporary artistic and cultural events in the space under the bridge. The furniture is designed in a harmony with arches and makes some break point between two main movements. The material used for these arched forms is metal mesh that makes both cohesion theme with existing structure of the bridge, and better visual connection for people.
