A Graceful Organic Foot Bridge… With a Twist

42 architecture

Miró Rivera Architects have designed this lovely, organic structure that blends gracefully into its densely vegetated Lake Austin setting.

The charming footbridge is totally integrated within its wetland setting.

The lightweight structure is unmistakably organic and natural, its design inspired by the native reeds that cover the lake shores.

All the more astonishing then is the robust nature of its construction – from 1/2 inch steel bars!

These bars (or “reeds”)  intertwine at the abutments and have been beautifully made to “grow” naturally over the bridge, camouflaging its practical and maintenance-free steel construction.

The arch structure spans 100 feet with a main span of 80 feet that diverges gracefully between the spring-point of the main span and the abutment.

Surprisingly, this pedestrian footbridge is on private land.

The foot bridge connects a main house on the property with a newly constructed guest house.

This almost invisible link is a  artistic and imaginative solution that is fully organic, yet never corny.
