Anyone who tried scripting a design or generating form with digital tools knows how difficult it is to not let the tool show. In order to bring design to life, it is crucial to build on uncertainties and a loss of control, letting curiosity lead to unexpected results. These bridges bare witness to a process-driven design process, where deliberate formgiving supplements generative formfinding techniques and thus results in personal and yet parametrically controlled form
