Dead Cactus Bridge

Initial Prototypes

My inspiration for this project was dried cactus skin. From an engineering standpoint, cactus skin has the most strength per the amount of material used compared to other natural structures. I think this bridge captures that fact quite well. The hardest part of this project was figuring out how to create a 3 dimensional structure that would span full distance of the gorge.
