Most of the bridges, viaducts and other technical installations are mentioned only in the literature — the exceptions, like the Eiffel tower, can be counted on the fingers. These include unusual the Rotterdam bridge received the nickname "the Swan".

It was built just at the period when the first plan went out the identity of the architect and his self-expression. Of course, this dramatically influenced the appearance of buildings of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. History of architecture now is not the history of certain styles, as it was before. Now it is based on individual non-standard buildings and in the names of the architects, radiant engineering ideas. So, in 1957 in Utrecht, was born one of the most notable modern architects — Ben van Berkel. According to him, the purpose of architecture is to combine the magic of building solutions with theoretical knowledge, with the result that the architect can become as great an inventor as a scientist.

Asymmetrical bridge in Rotterdam is perhaps the most famous work of the architect. It has a sloping pylon with a length of 139 meters and serves to connect the new district Kop van Zuid with the historical center of the city. This is an important symbol of the modernization of the country, especially because it is a very busy highway every day going across the bridge and twenty thousand machines. Design equipped with an intelligent illumination which gives it a more modern look. The bridge is about three hundred meters, and it bent at a very unusual angle, resembling a graceful Swan neck. The new project required a lot of precise engineering calculations. In addition, used the latest materials — steel of particularly high quality, securely supports the enormous weight of the blade and riding it cars. It is also resistant to temperature changes and various physical damage. This is achieved by adding in steel, Nickel and chlorine. In your case van Berkel used different computer programs and other modern technology, believing that without it in our time can not do. He believes that computer engineering is a kind of art, and what you need to avoid being too academic in architecture. For the construction of buildings went 163 million euros. The Grand opening was attended by the Queen of the country. Really, what a month it turned out that the bridge is not too resistant to strong gusts of wind, it began to wobble dangerously. The problem was solved by adding extra supports; now everything is in a stable condition. This single-bearing alternator axle, everything else, still the longest of all the drawbridges on the planet.
