Abstract

The school of bridges in Venice was founded almost twenty years ago at IUAV University of Architecture in Venice by Prof. Enzo Siviero. The group of researchers involved, mostly phd doctors, are active in bridge design, research on structural architecture, promotion of international conferences and finally on didactics. In the last few years 'Theory and design of bridges' has been chosen by more than 100 students every year and is among the most appreciated modules of IUAV University. In year 2009, the course was held in parallel with Tongji University of Shanghai, thanks to an agreement between the professors in charge, which lead to an exchange of students during the academic year. The results are extremely interesting, many structures were designed joining aesthetics, innovation, structural feasibility and economy of realization. © 2013 Taylor & Francis Group.
