Hollandse Brug Almere

Hollandse Brug, Almere Netherlands
Design: 2010 competition

The design for the bridge consists of two parts: six columns between the new and the old bridge and a newly designed bridge part. The six columns have been developed to bring the entire bridge within the scope of 'Free Energy' (sun, wind, and water). The result means that the columns ultimately generate energy, save energy, and reduce pollution. The columns are made of steel. The frame is constructed like many electricity pylons. Efficient and lightweight. The solar collectors and wind machines on the columns can rotate. In addition, there is a zone for water storage, water purification, and solar collectors between the columns and the two bridge parts
