This final tutorial consists of the modelling of a pedestrian bridge on Grasshopper. It is located in Porto, Portugal, under Arrábida Bridge, in a place where, nowadays, people can’t go from one side of the bank to the other, unless they catch a boat. The idea was to create a simple but dynamic structure, based on the big arch of the main bridge and following the rhythm of its structure.
