Looking for help with structures


Hello, I’m a 3rd year student at an architectural university and we have a fairly simple task for this trimester – car parking building. In order to make it somewhat complicated I decided to combine it with a pedestrian bridge and now I don’t know how to make structures of this building.


The idea is to create a single span bridge with parking on 0 lvl. The main goal is to find structure that wont need supports.

I've been working on this in grasshopper: beams are 300x300 mm and the shape is 35x233x5 meters.

Thank you for you time!

You have a rather difficult problem. The span of 278 m is quite long if you don't accept intermediate supports. Your bridge will be rather expensive to build because it will have to be very strong to support this length.
