Puente móvil sobre el río

PUENTE APOSTROFE

Puente apóstrofe, McDowell + Benedetti

Puente apostrofe es una estructura que cruza el rio vinculando el antiguo casco urbano de Hull con la zona industrial no desarrollada de orilla oriental estableciendo un recorrido peatonal entre los museos y el acuario de la ciudad.

Un mecanismo de rotación permite que el puente gire sobre su eje dejando espacio para el paso de barcos que navegan el rio. McDowell + Benedetti diseñaron el puente en  acero con un movimiento rotatorio tan lento que permite a los peatones continuar con el paseo cuando la estructura está en el movimiento. El sonido de campanas y una luz intermitente se activa cuando el puente comienza su movimiento de rotación.

La forma de apóstrofe permite establecer dos rutas diferentes, un sendero de suave pendiente a lo largo del borde exterior y un segundo camino escalonado que cubre el lado interior. La parte angosta del puente esta elevada respecto a la superficie del agua para permitir que las embarcaciones pequeñas pasen sin necesidad de abrir el puente.

El centro de rotación está conformado por un tambor de un solo nivel con un restaurante en su interior y una azotea erigida como puesto de observación. En el eje central una sala de estar con vista al rio congrega a los visitantes, coronada por una carpintería que asemeja una aleta de tiburón que se ilumina por las noches para dar un toque distintivo al dispositivo.

“El puente de acero negro tiene un carácter distintivo,  robusto y de formas curvas que lo convierten en un hito memorable único en Hull y su patrimonio industrial marítimo”  McDowell + Benedetti

Mobile device on the river. Apostrophe Bridge is a structure that crosses the river linking the old town of Hull with undeveloped industrial area of east bank establishing a pedestrian route between museums and the city aquarium. A rotation mechanism allows the bridge turn on its axis making room for the passage of vessels plying the river. McDowell + Benedetti designed the steel bridge with a rotary motion so slow that allows pedestrians continue to walk when the structure is in motion. The sound of bells and flashing light is activated when the bridge starts its rotation.

The apostrophe way to set two different routes, one sloping path along the outer edge and a second stepped path that covers the inside. The narrow part of the bridge is raised above the surface of the water to allow small boats to pass without opening the bridge. The center of rotation is formed by a single-level drum with a restaurant inside and a roof erected as a lookout. At the core a living room overlooking the river attracts visitors, crowned by a carpenter that resembles a shark fin that lights up at night to give a distinctive look to the device. “The black steel bridge has a distinctive robust character and curving form, making it a memorable landmark that is unique to Hull and its industrial and maritime heritage” McDowell + Benedetti
