Swiss architect Christian von Düring also produced use of this bridging formation for a house in Switzerland, which characteristics an upper storey that straddles two ground floor volumes, while Bjarke Ingels’ firm recently unveiled plans to build a twisted art gallery that bridges a Norwegian river.

“The result is a suspended bridge positioned transversely to the channel and supported on the two sides by two concrete walls that define and give scale to the intervention,” said the architects.
