Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Article source: Larson O’Brien Marketing Group

MUKWONAGO, WI…Commutes between Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia are famously arduous. Thanks to the new Dulles Corridor Metrorail Silver Line, those routes have gotten significantly easier. The route currently runs to fast-growing areas outside of Washington, D.C., including Tysons Corner, and will eventually provide a direct route from Dulles International Airport to downtown Washington, D.C. Pedestrian bridges featuring more than 60,000-square-feet of Banker Wire woven wire mesh are interspersed throughout the line.

SEOUL SKYGARDEN in South Korea by MVRDV

Saturday, May 16th, 2015

Article source: MVRDV

About:

The Seoul Station Overpass was built in the 1970s to provide a vehicular connection from Namdaemun market, the largest traditional market in Seoul to the East, across the station area to the various parks in the West. Following intensive safety inspections in 2006, the City of Seoul deemed the 17-metre high structure of the overpass unsafe and intended to demolish and rebuild it, banning heavy vehicles’ access to the elevated roadway in 2009. Further consultation with residents and experts lead to the plan to regenerate the overpass, which totals 9.661 m2 in area, into a pedestrian walkway and public space, with the design competition launched in 2015.

Butterfly bridge – ChristianshavnsKanal and Transgraven in Copenhagen, Denmark by Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

Article source: Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes

Bridges are places that offer new perspectives on the city, spectacular views of the water that reveal the cityscape. The bridges are elements that are part of the urban landscape in a natural way.

Through their simplicities, they form a contrast with the monumental buildings. The bridges designated for pedestrians and cyclists offer a maximum of transparency and lightness.

The Jetty – bridge to the Mont Saint-Michel in France by Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Article source: Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes

Creating a new access to one of the most remarkable cultural monuments and landscapes in Europe is a rare challenge for the design of a causeway.

The estuary of the Couesnon River surprises by the immensity of the bay surrounding the Mont Saint-Michel, by the beauty of light and the colours of the natural elements. The changing sea level by tides rising up to 14 m,  creates a repeated event exposing the forces of nature and offers a variety of landscapes alternating between land reaching far out into the sea on low tide and the water filled bay with the Mont transformed into an island as only landmark on high tide. This radical change contributes to the magic of the site.

Garden Bridge in London, England by Heatherwick Studio

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

Article source: Heatherwick Studio

Following Transport for London’s (TfL) tender for proposals to improve pedestrian links across the river, Heatherwick Studio and actor and campaigner Joanna Lumley have developed an idea for a new pedestrian ‘Garden Bridge’ across the River Thames; a scheme to connect North and South London with a garden. As one of the greenest cities of its size in the world, this precious new piece of landscape will add to London’s rich and diverse horticultural heritage of heathlands, parks, squares, allotments and community gardens and support many indigenous river edge plant species.

Footbridge Ribja brv in Ljubljana, Slovenia by Arhitektura d.o.o.

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Article source: Arhitektura d.o.o.

It is often believed that Plečnik was inspired by Venice and its bridges in his rearrangement of Keller’s concrete river bed of Ljubljanica. What exactly Plečnik had in mind, we do not know today but one thing is certain: due to Plečnik’s interventions the ambience and layout of Ljubljanica riverside has a Venetian flair. As in Venice, Plečnik envisaged and placed several new bridges over the river. Two of them, namely the Triple Bridge and the Shoemakers’ bridge, were realized as public areas, new public spaces, which were liberated from the river and given to the citizens.

Ölhafen Bridge in Raunheim, Germany by schneider+schumacher

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

Article source: schneider+schumacher

The new white oil terminal bridge is an elegant, curved structure. It spans the 70m wide entrance to the oil terminal harbour in Raunheim with a spiralling access ramp. This sculptural bridge design stems from Frankfurt architects schneider+schumacher.

The clients for the bridge appointed Schüßler-Plan as structural engineers. The bridge’s location is, on the one hand, influenced by the industrial character of the harbour, and on the other, by the River Main that runs parallel to it, with its attractive embankment and mature trees. The bridge will primarily be used by cyclists and pedestrians.
