merging computational techniques with a natural architectural language, ‘cloudbridge’ by architects at arturo tedeschi reflects the site’s existing landscape. influenced by sou fujimoto’s 2013 serpentine pavilion, the project creates a non-linear path suspended between two points. responding to both the mountain and the sky, a specific algorithm was used to design a cloud-shape grid that balances the asymmetric loads of the footbridge. the overlapping of transparent geometric forms joins the bridge together, offering an experience that helps to promotes a journey rather than just a passing from ‘a’ to ‘b’.
