Cirkelbroen Bridge in Copenhagen, Denmark by Studio Olafur Eliasson

Thursday, September 3rd, 2015

Article source: Studio Olafur Eliasson

Cirkelbroen celebrates pedestrians. It reflects the daily life and intimacy that you find around the canal in the Christianshavn neighbourhood, its houseboats and sailing boats, the unique life on the ramparts. Copenhagen’s harbour was once a centre of maritime activity, and Cirkelbroen is a testimony to that history.

Pedestrian Bridge in Austin, Texas by MRA – Miró Rivera Architects

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

Article source: MRA – Miró Rivera Architects

With a design inspired by the reeds that cover the shores of the lake, the bridge is a light and maintenance-free structure that is well-integrated within its wetland setting. The bars/reeds intertwine at the abutments and “grow” over the bridge, camouflaging it and transforming the bridge into a symbiotic, almost invisible link.
Composed of five nested pipes, the arch structure spans 100 feet with a main span of 80 feet.

Pedestrian & cyclist bridge Expo 2015 in Milan, Italy by Studio PP8

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

Article source: Studio PP8

The footbridge by studio PP8 was created as part of the city of Milan’s ongoing urban plan. The steel structure crosses the A8 motorway at Arese, giving a safe passage to pedestrians and cyclists to the Milan expo area. The footbridge is composed of cross steel tubes, with corrugated steel slabs on two levels, one for foot traffic and the other for bikers. To avoid uncomfortable acceleration produced by running people it was inserted a TMD (Tuned Mass Daper) just under the corrugated steel slab, in the middle of the main span.

“There is no other bridge like it that is specifically designed to house bats,” claims Herman Limpens, international expert in the field of bats from the Mammal Society. Limpens was part of the design process for the Vlotwateringbridge, that is now under construction and is expected for completion by the summer. The bridge creates a passage over the Vlotwtering, which is currently an important route for several species of bats.

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.

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.
