Abstrait: This design concept was originated in response to a government-sponsored design contest for the North Frame Pedestrian Bridge (NFPB). The bridge, located on the Ōtākaro/Avon River in Christchurch, New Zealand, is one of a series of post-earthquake recovery projects aimed at attracting people to visit and live in the rebuilding city of Christchurch. The University of Canterbury entered this contest and established a design team of senior Engineering and Fine Arts students, supervised by three professors. The brief required the team to combine a strong design aesthetic with a tightly constrained and functional built object. This resulted in a unique design, fitting for inclusion in the public art collection. The structural system, based on a weathering steel tri-dimensional “Vierendeel” girder/truss, also responds to the art form of a traditional Māori fishing net. Both truss and trap are made of repeated rings, of variable size, connected by an organic net.
