Three Pronged Bridge

Investigates the simultaneous coexistence in architecture between program and structure. The project uses inherent geometrical qualities of the triangle, orthocenter, centroid and circumcenter to design a bridge created in direct relationship to the courtyard. By identifying particular centers inscribed within a triangle, and then linking them through the geometrical principle of the Euler line, a structural organization is developed in mutual and simultaneous relationship to program.

The three “centers” of the triangle lie on one straight line. This correspondence between Orthocenter, Centroid, and Circumcenter creates the location of bridging planes within the range of the perimeter of the courtyard.
