Duet is a bridge designed in collaboration with van Hattum Blankevoort. It is the first implementation of a modular bridge system that has been in development for three year. The blocks can be totally disassembled and reused.
The challenge of the design was to implement the generic orthogonal system within a curved path of the bridge and other site specific conditions.
The design furthermore uses recycled concrete for the heavier vehicular bridge and wood for the pedestrian bridge. In this way a smart allocation of materials was used according to different uses and weight loads. Additionally, the guide rail for boats was designed to have the double function as a public deck which provides recreational access to the waterfront.
