Abstract [en]

New structural mechanics insights have always had repercussions on the design procedures for engineers. The structural typologies resulting from these procedures privilege certain solutions while dismissing others. Timber bridge constructions of different periods exemplify this development. Computational design tools offer new possibilities for design procedures that overcome predefined structural typologies and evolve highly context sensitive and adapted structures. An evolutionary design approach for a vector active pedestrian bridge in Germany is presented in this paper.
