BRIDGE BETWEEN TOWER BUILDING

Hanshin Expressway going through Gate Tower Building
 

Watch it on YouTube : BRIDGE BETWEEN TOWER BUILDING

The building has a double core construction, with a circular cross section. The Umeda Exit of the Ikeda Route of the Hanshin Expressway system (when exiting the highway from the direction of Ikeda) passes between the fifth and seventh floors of this building. The highway is the tenant of those floors. The elevator passes through the floors without stopping: floor 4 being followed by floor 8. The floors through which the highway passes consist of elevators, stairways and machinery. The highway does not make contact with the building. It passes through as a bridge, held up by supports next to the building. The highway is surrounded by a structure to protect the building from noise and vibration. The roof has a helipad.

INFLATABLE TRAMPOLINE BRIDGE

INFLATABLE TRAMPOLINE BRIDGE, PARIS

A Bridge in Paris, allows us to locate an architectural reflection within this same realm of contemporary urban enjoyment. We note first that the notion of happiness is often linked to Nature. And we recognize that human beings remain nostalgic for and imaginative of a state of primal happiness, of ancestral times when body and spirit were essentially free. The city has grown to conform our movement to regular rituals and daily itineraries.Each module under tension – filled with 3700 cubic meters of air – develops in space with an arch-like form.It would be constructed from giant PVC rings inflated with more than 130,000 cubic feet of air

WORLD's HIGHEST LIFTING BRIDGE

The Pont Gustave-Flaubert (Gustave Flaubert Bridge) is a vertical lift bridge over the River Seine at Rouen, Seine-Maritime, Haute-Normandie, France. It officially opened on 25 September 2008 after four years of work

At the location chosen for the bridge the river is only 180m wide and the basic clearance requirements for the crossing were a minimum opening of 86m, a height of 55m (vertical clearance) when lifted and 7m when in the lower position. The two high towers which carry the lifting equipment and guide the spans are about 80m high. The two independent spans (can be independently lifted) each carry three carriageways and a 2.5m walkway and are 18m wide.

The total length of the roadway is 670m and the liftable section is 116m long; the weight of each roadway is 1,200t. The towers are placed in between the spans with lifting equipment overhanging them on both sides. Each of the two towers has two hollow concrete shafts that are supported on an elliptical caisson. This shape minimizes interference with the river flow.

WORLD's WIDEST BRIDGE

Watch it on YouTube : WORLD's WIDEST BRIDGE

The Port Mann Bridge is a newly designed 10-lane cable-stayed bridge that opened to traffic in 2012. It is currently the second longest cable-stayed bridge in North America and the widest bridge in the world. The new bridge replaced a steel bridge that spanned the Fraser River, connecting Coquitlam to Surrey in British Columbia near Vancouver. The old bridge consisted of three spans with an orthotropic deck carrying five lanes of Trans-Canada Highway traffic, with approach spans of three steel plate girders and concrete deck. The total length of the previous Port Mann was 2,093 m (6,867 ft), including approach spans. The main span was 366 m (1,201 ft), plus the two 110 m (360 ft) spans on either side. Volume on the old bridge was 127,000 trips per day. Approximately eight percent of the traffic on the Port Mann bridge was truck traffic.

WORLD's LONGEST BRIDGE FOUNTAIN

BANPO BRIDGE (Moonlight Rainbow Fountain, South Korea)
Watch it on YouTube : WORLD's LONGEST BRIDGE FOUNTAIN 

The Banpo Bridge is a major bridge in downtown Seoul over the Han River, South Korea, connecting the Seocho and Yongsan districts. The Banpo Bridge is on top of Jamsu Bridge, forming a "double deck" bridge. During periods of high rainfall, the Jamsu Bridge is designed to submerge as the water level of the river rises, as the lower deck lies close to the waterline. This deck incorporates pedestrian and bicycle paths that provide easy access to the Banpo Hangang Park from the north side of the river. Banpo Bridge is a girder bridge and was completed in 1982.

Moonlight Rainbow Fountain

The Moonlight Rainbow Fountain is the world's longest bridge fountain that set a Guinness World Record with nearly 10,000 LED nozzles that run along both sides that is 1,140m long, shooting out 190 tons of water per minute. Installed in September 2009 on the Banpo Bridge, Seoul mayor Oh Se-hoon praised that the bridge will further beautify the city and showcase Seoul's eco-friendliness, as the water is pumped directly from the river itself and continuously recycled.[4] The bridge has 38 water pumps and 380 nozzles on either side, which draw 190 tons of water per minute from the river 20 meters below the deck, and shoots as far as 43 meters horizontally.
