A bridge is a structure built to span a valley, road, body of water, or other
physical obstacle, for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle.
Designs of bridges vary depending on the function of the bridge and the

•Nineteenth-century Chicago's geography presented unusual
•A narrow river, with low banks, ran through the heart of the city,
requiring frequent crossings.
•Yet the navigable river was one of the world's great ports, and the
low bridges had to accommodate frequent passage of masted ships.
A new type of
bridge, the Scherzer
rolling lift bridge, was
designed in 1894 for the
Metropolitan West Side
Elevated Railroad and
nearby Van Buren Street
At the beginning of the
twenty-first century, the city

Dynamic architecture is a
product of architecture which is
The Dynamic Tower
The Dynamic Tower is also known as Dynamic
Architecture building or the Da Vinci Tower.
The Dynamic Tower is a proposed 420-metre
(1,378 ft), 80-floor tower in Dubai,United Arab
It is under construction.
FEATURES OF THE
Uniquely each floor of this tower
will be able to rotate independently
which will result in constantly
changing shape of the tower.
Each floor of the tower is designed
to rotate a maximum of 6 meters per
minute and 90 minutes per rotation.
The entire tower will be powered
from wind turbines and solar panel.
Enough surplus electricity should be
produced to power five other similar
sized buildings in the vicinity.
The total construction time will be
more than 30% less than a normal
skyscraper of the same size
