Art is ... Designing Weird Bridges - STEAM (Photo References)
Introduction to 4 Types of Bridges, with photos and blanks for drawing.
Six examples of unique bridges from around the world.
Each page lists the name of the bridge, the designer/architect, the type of bridge, blanks for drawing and photo credits.
1. Dragon Bridge in VIet Nam. (Shoots fire from its mouth every night at 9 pm)
2. Langkawi Sky Bridge in Malaysia
3. Rolling Bridge in London, UK (rolls into an octogon)
4. Magdeburg Water Bridge in Germany
5. Animal Bridge in Banff, Canada
6. Friendship Bridge in Natan, Japan
Photo references are given so students have an accurate picture to design from. Drawing prompts are given, or students may simply draw their own creations, inspired by the photos. Photos are used in Fair Use in Education and credits are given. My students won't be building any creative bridges yet, but they may be designing some great ones for the future.
Any questions please ask. My school is a STEAM school although ART uses all STEAM concepts daily. This is a project that combines art with photography and engineering.
Most of my activities are Open-Ended. Please download my Free Introduction to Open Ended Art. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
