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.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
