Abstract: This thesis aims to explore the architecture of bridging techniques via the program of an extreme sports centre at Kent Ridge Park. It involves the understanding and application of structural principles in relation to tension and compression and at the same time, aims to achieve architectural expression through the interpretation of its extreme sports function. Addressing the issue of a lack of sports activities along the Southern Ridges, Kent Ridge Park provides a prime location as a nodal point as it is currently the starting/ending point and future middle point of the 9km trail. Two paths are proposed to connect patrons from the public road toward the existing mountain bike trail, and Southern Ridges trail over a water body. Site opportunities are capitalised for extreme sports activities such as bungee jump, rock climbing, skateboarding & BMX stunt. Structural dynamism and suspension are explored and emphasised to enhance the sense of excitement of the facility.
