Rather than lifting the surface of the bridge above the floodplain, the designers decided to embrace the water. So when the water level rises, sections of the pathway on either side of the bridge become fully submerged.
When this happens, the concrete blocks on the surface of the bridge – which ordinarily function as seats – become the only way of traversing the water.
“All designs by Next Architects start from the unique characteristics of a place,” explained Michel Schreinemachers, a partner at the Amsterdam-based firm.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
