For our first action project in Urban planning, we were tasked with building a bridge that could hold weight. Bridges are an important part of any urban area, especially one with water, like New York or Chicago. We had to design it within our group, decide on the materials needed to make the bridge and keep it in budget. We then built the bridge over the course of three days. Below is our design and a video clip of us testing out our bridge. In the end, our bridge was able to hold up 17 books, which was 28.9 lbs.
