An Amazing Folding Sailboat Bridge

  • Author:Onekin

  • Release on :2017-08-21




This is Dr. Margot Krasojevic’s latest project: a bridge that can sail across the water, dubbed the “Revolving Sail Bridge”. The reason why it been called “ revolving sail bridge” is because the flexible structure of it and the sails - that make it can relocate by sailing along the river to its new position. It can sailing along the mongolian river.


According to the release, The sails are made of lightweight aluminum frame, clad in a carbon fibre reinforced polymer. They are suspended from a rotating Mobius ballast chamber which is hydraulically operated by a thruster to rotate and fill with water in order to revolve the sail and relocate the bridge. The rotating Mobius element is made from lightweight aluminium enveloped in stabilizer fins and photovoltaic cells which power the thruster. It consists of five ballast tanks which fill with water and which rotate the sail from horizontal to vertical. The other four tanks are left filled with air so that the sail remains buoyant when used either as a bridge or sailed to a new position. 



Margot Krasojevic graduated from the University of London at Bartlett School of Architecture, worked for Zaha Hadid and NOX construction company, and later she set up a personal architectural office in 2000, known for its science fiction design.


This incredible, mobile bridge commissioned by the Ordos government in Mongolia as a prospective crossing for the Wulanmulun River - located in ordos city, kangbashi district mongolia.
