Scope of work For RFR - Structural design
Two footbridges are foreseen for the site of Al Raha Beach, the 11 km long extension of Abu Dhabi towards Dubai. Both steel structures are around 200 meters long and act structurally as continuous trusses over four supports. The name “organic” is derived by the irregular shape of the bridges, which is based on a topology optimisation.
