Born in Berne, Switzerland, future structural engineering visionary
Robert Malliart earned a degree in civil engineering from the Federal
Polytechnical Institute in Zurich in 1894. Malliart established his
own design-construction company in 1902 and moved the firm to Russia
in 1912, only to see it fail during the Russian Revolution five years
In a two-year span before the move to Russia, Malliart entered five
major bridge competitions, although judging bodies typically preferred
bridges more conventional than young Malliarts. Regardless of the
design competitions, continued innovative bridge designs produced
notoriety for him.
One of my favorites:
It's not only geometric and mechanical, it's also dynamic and maybe even
a little sexy when it opens (as though you excited it) and as it sticks
up and is not yet fully down. ;)
In countryside settings, I also love old stone arch bridges, as well as
I'll bet she'd rather not have any need for a bridge at all.
In Ottawa in the summer, I would sometimes better enjoy my lunches by
sitting on the edge of the downtown Rideau Canal's bridge's concrete
railing and dangle my feet over the water.
i hope this is no offend as well i'm testing my email address. i hope this
is not abridge too far. as people always say, architect design building and
civil engineer design targets......
Actually I was originally thinking of some musical reference but
decided it was too hard and I didn't know enough to do it. You know,
something like "I liked the bridge between the first two songs that
Springsteen did during the superbowl".
