Dublin Link Pedestrian Bridge
This presentation will discuss the design process used to develop the iconic Dublin Link Pedestrian Bridge from the earliest concepts to the final vision. The discussion will include the ethos of balance, lightness, and the use of fundamental principles to direct the design concept; the derivation of the alignment and material aesthetic from the surrounding context; and the use of stress to shape the expressive form of the central tower and single-sided suspension cables.
Presented by: Paul Endres, SE, FAIA, Endrestudio
Painting Michigan's 'Mighty Mac': The Mackinac Bridge Paint Platform Project
As part of this 5-mile long suspension bridge's first stripping and repainting in its 60+ year history, engineers designed platforms that allowed for removal and collection of the original lead-based paint and repainting of the bridge’s 552-foot towers. The platform was designed as an enclosed, lightweight modular space frame capable of sustaining 100mph+ winds – a two-story movable steel and aluminum structure that encircled each tower leg. A second platform, consisting of steel box trusses, was used for the struts connecting the tower legs.
