As I sit in studio questioning which design options I’m going to decide on, I thought maybe I should share my thoughts with you in order to narrow it down. I’m pretty settled on designing a bridge, as it’s something that I’ve always wanted to do, but I don’t know in which application I should design it (highway, pedestrian, heavy locomotive, etc.).
My initial design was inspired by rock formation, which would mimic the patterns to create a system of bridges. I would most probably design this for a highway system, but am not sure on how far I would be able to take it. Though my sketches seem to broadcast an elegant design.
The second option was to design an ice bridge for ice-truckers in Fort McMurray Alberta or any of the Territories that work with large machinery for work, such as oil sands, mining, etc. The bridge is to be built either of triangulation patterns formed by natural ice crystals/ icebergs, or as a honeycomb structure, since the honeycomb is able to span long distances. The only thing that worries me is that it’s too generic.
