Description

Bazaar Gol (The Flower Market) is located in a small valley to the west of recreational area of Abbas-Abad lands. The Abrisham Bridge II connects the two sides of this small valley together and therefore
provides a pedestrian-only link between Norouz and Safarhaye Asemani Parks. Two membrane cones which form part of this structure cover an area of 2056m² above this market. What led to the design of Abrisham Bridge II and its membrane coverings was the aim to create a distinctive landmark for Bazaar Gol in Abbas-Abad lands.
Taking advantage of axial forces and avoidance in use of bending moments in the design of this bridge has resulted in significant weight reduction and enhancement of its aesthetic appearance. Tare affixed at centre to a hinged spindle-shaped truss column and from sides to the foundation and central arches of the bridge.
