Seminar on Structural Challenges in Soft Mobility
March 21 - the Belgian Group of IABSE is organising a seminar on Structural Challenges in Soft Mobility in Neder-Over-Heembeek (Business Faculty Brussels) in Belgium. The programme consists of lectures, presentations and discussions, offering a broad perspective on the entire theme of structural challenges in soft mobility. Starting from policy views and needs, it further elaborates on the conceptual and architectural implementation and integration of these bridges in the environment and in society. The comfort requirements and creativity in the use of materials is discussed. Various structural solutions for pedestrian and bicycle bridges are explained on the basis of recent national and international designs or realisations. Finally, the evolution of soft mobility is discussed in the short as well as the long term.
With the organisation of this seminar, the Belgian Group of IABSE wants to launch an exchange of opinions and ideas, using a wide range of differing positions, views and ideas concerning the existing policies, architectural trends concerning pedestrian and cycling infrastructure, the development of such projects and some international examples.
