Project description

Landscape, bridge, architectural design: the new pedestrian and bicycle bridge puts an end to the spatial separation of the landscape between the upstream and downstream segments of the Werre River. The pre-tensioned ribbon bridge spans the river from shore to shore. The 30-cm-narrow pedestrian crossing is simultaneously the supporting structure. The ribbon is anchored to the abutment blocks integrated into the dam and diverted at the central support. The minimal cross-section of this supporting structure provides an unimpeded view of the entire riverine landscape from all sides and enhances its role as a local recreational area. At the end of the retaining wall, between the two arms of the river, a pillar supports the bridge ribbon and pushes it upwards. The slight change in direction at this high point enriches the experience of the pedestrians and cyclists crossing the bridge.
