The making of the Bridge

23 07 2012

Yvar was a remarkable boy. One of his talents was the ability to bring together groups of dissenting people: he was able to bridge their dissents. In addition, he was obsessed with bridges. A project he did on basic school was to build a bridge from paper strips which was strong enough to hold 500 times its own weight. In the US of A, he was thrilled by the view of the bridge in New York: illuminated in the dark, with nice green accents on the construction.

In this post we will document how we managed to construct  a model of this bridge, which is now on his grave as a monument to remember his bridging talents.

First, we made a wooden mock-up.

When all the details, sizes were correct, we started to do the steel work. Ava was doing the heavy work, I was just supervising 😉
