Project 1

Form & Function

The intended goal of this project was to demonstrate the form and function of a bridge through mechanical components inspired by household objects as a means to demonstrate the greater purpose of the bridge. In this case the requirement was that the moving component of the bridge required enough space to allow a 30' X 40' ship to pass through.
