rural studio #5: bridge + tower
Once again we are back with more on Rural Studio this time with a set of projects from Perry Lake Park walking bridge and tower. The bridge is made of cypress wood and covered with salvaged tin. It creates three triangular sections: the outer two sections support the central section which allows it to float above the creek below.
The steel cable connections accentuate the lightness and allow it to gently sway as you move across it.
The footpath is simple and hovers over the swamp land below.
and the tower:
This tower is exactly 100ft tall and is made from an old fire tower and re-galvanized for its new use.
