why?

dhy!!!

does this makes sense?

The construction is built like a traditional ship. (longboat)
Every other meter there’s a rib wich form is morphed linearly.
These ribs will be joined together.
This creates a skeleton (see rendering 1)
This form will be closed by steel plating, creating a stiff construction.
(see rendering 2 and 3)
The dynamics of the bridge is enforced by a kink at 1/3 of the length.
The kink will have a reinforcement,the pillar, also made of a plate steel.
The form of the pillar gives a clear direction to the bridge.

one suggestion:

The construction is built like a traditional ship. (longboat)
-> The construction is inspired by the shape of a raditional ship type, the longboat.

yeah, I though he was talking about an actual ship, at first (in italian, "bridge" = "deck")

is that Calatrava's new bridge in Venice???

The construction is built like a traditional viking ship. (longboat)
Every other meter there’s a rib whos form is morphed linearly.

The construction uses principles derived from the traditional scandinavian longboat. It is reinforced by vertically extruded ribs at two meter intervals, that are joined together like the hull of a ship, creating a framework. (Illustration 1.)
The framework will be covered in steel plating to form a rigid structure. (Illustrations 2 and 3.)

The shape is made more dynamic by a turning 1/3 of the way across. This turning will also, using a plate steel pillar, provide structural reinforcement for the bridge. The shape of the pillar will serve to orientate the bridge in a defined direction.

Or something. If I understood it all.

C.G.B. Spender

Why not "The bridge looks like a fucking ship"?

Scabrous Birdseed
08-08-2007, 13:29:30
Mmm. I think what you shoud really do (you're trying to flatter Danes, right?) is describe the structure of the traditional longboat and then compare it with what you've created.

It should start with

We see a ship. A traditonal longboat. The zenith of scandinavian craftsmanship. But it's not only a ship, it also can be - a fucking bridge!

So you are saying scandinavians never made anything better than a Longboat? What about ikea?

We see a sofa, a moderately comfortable but very economical sofa...

C.G.B. Spender

Well, IKEA is not something scandinavians build, because I have to build it myself. And the non-fitting parts are manufactured in Bulgaria

So: What's typical about Denmark? The ships are history.

When I think of Denmark I think of hot dogs! Danish style! Yay. With bright-red sausages.

So the bridge should be hot dog shaped.

Summary: A major traffic bridge collapsed in Minneapolis recently - lots of damage. Fewer dead than expected as it collapsed full of vehicles during rush hour. Bridge was 40 years old and known to be in not-so-great shape.

funny thing about the text is, first Dutch - translate into English - make a bookje for the design - send it to Denmark - they translate the text into Danish - they make the danish bookje.

Pretty long communication line, I bet there will be some big big mistakes when we've have to make the work-drawings.
