KAPKAR / H3H-YPB | Gate Bridge Pavilion | H3H Biennale

By using reused wood that can be reused again, the Gate Bridge Pavilion is 100% sustainable. René de Wit René de Wit René de Wit During the joint walk in the Benedictine sisters convent garden, it was said by the curators that a temporary passage was planned from the adjacent cobble stone lane through the concrete wall to make the exhibition in the garden of the Onze Lieve Vrouwe Abbey accessible for the H3H art Biennal visitors.  It is especially emphasised that this will be a very special moment, because the catholic cloister sisters that are an enclosed religious order have never allowed public access to their private garden before. Besides going through the wall the passage also crosses a deep d... More

Asiat-Darse Bridge

Leading architect Sumayya Vally, Principal of the Johannesburg/London-based studio Counterspace, has won the competition to design the new Asiat-Darse pedestrian bridge in Vilvoorde, Belgium. Counterspace’s response to the brief uncovered the story and legacy of Paul Panda Farnana, one of the most important, yet least acknowledged figures of the city, who epitomises the region’s complex relationships with past and future generations of migrant bodies and communities. Render: Counterspace The studio has been praised for its research-led approach, which led to the discovery of Farnana and his work, and for shedding light on an otherwise overlooked, vital part of the city’s history. Farnana used his position to advoca... More

Lundabron

The footbridge, which is situated in the city’s recreation area, connects the river’s left bank with the island of Bölesholmarna and links up to a small bridge bridging the arm of the river. The footbridge connects pedestrian and cyclist trails situated along both river's banks; it also carries electrical and communication cables. Larsson Fredrik Larsson Fredrik The footbridge consists of a prestressed concrete deck of one span of length of 179.00 m, which is suspended on two inclined suspension cables of three spans of lengths of 28.80+187.00+29.50 m. The bridge deck has a variable width - from 6.40 m in the middle of the bridge to 8.40 m at the abutments. The maximum sag of the cables is 20.90 m. The bridge dec... More

Bridge of Sundsvall

The highway bridge gently curves across the bay along Sweden's eastern coast, roughly 400 km north of Stockholm - in Sundsvall. It belongs to the expansion project of the European route E4 and closes a gap between Stockholm and the border to Finland. The project aims to enlarge the road network capacity, to reduce traffic jams and to redirect the traffic outside urban areas, thus bringing down the amount of emissions in Sundsvall and increasing road safety south of Sundsvall. Kasper Dudzik Moving the traffic outside Sundsvall’s city center has been studied for decades through a major road project and an urban development vision making it possible for the city to grow along the bay’s beaches and reach the water. A step... More

BRIDGE MUNICIPAL FÜR EIN KOSPITAL IN KARLSRUHE

The Karlsruhe Municipal Hospital is a large hospital facility and the largest hospital in the "Mittlerer Oberrhein" region and a teaching hospital of the University of Freiburg. Every year, around 185,000 outpatients and over 63,000 inpatients are treated in the hospital by around 4,300 employees. However, due to the increased number of staff and treatments as well as an infrastructure that is no longer up to date, extensive structural changes are also planned for the coming years. Caption It is planned to erect a new helicopter landing platform as a free-standing structure on the open space in front of the building. The element of the current competition relates to the development of the bridge connection between the helicopter platf... More

Urban Bridge

Urban Bridge is a proposal for designing a new bridge connecting two significant parts of Isfahan city. Isfahan being both the capital city of Iran and its growth into Zayandehrud, the largest river of the Iranian Plateau, multiple bridges were built in this area in the past, all of which served as socializing places and cultural hubs for Iranians and visitors alike. These bridges were originally designed to connect two or more cities or villages. Still, new uses have been integrated to create a proper context for social interactions in addition to creating a link between the Zayandeh River's two sides. Due to the rising need for vehicle traffic in the recent years and the transformation of urban spaces, the spatial quality of bridges began... More

Trafalgar footbridge

We illuminated a bridge with a unique charm that made it stand out. The colored line lights perfectly outline the structure of the whole bridge. This, in turn, causes the lights to be mapped on the water, resulting in a combination that doesn’t go unnoticed. The chasing lights give vitality to the bridge and enhance its prominence. More

Life Bridge

The existence of the Qasr-dasht segregated gardens and Chamran gardens on both sides of the project site, led the idea of binding two adjacent areas together.  This project creates a continuous green network and make the bridge more integrated to the context. Shiraz City has a unique historical characteristic. The purpose of creating a connection between this bridge as new urban element with the historical urban context was to maintain a necessity to survive the historical identity from the current builder type development of the city.  AliIbnHamzeh Bridge will be the most important bridge in Shiraz due to its historical value and its location on the iconic Khoshk river.

The Chameleon

'A bridge you want to linger on'   Pontifex Hungaricus unveils the prototype of its innovative urban bridge, 'the Chameleon'. This innovative solution can be applied to any similar Warren truss bridge, but the version presented here targets a specific bridge location in Budapest. Caption Let us look at the constraints that define the bridge. The proposed bridge would be built on the north side of the Northern Link Rail Bridge. There is no road connection, so there is quite a detour for those wishing to cross to the other side of the Danube. The design of a new bridge is constrained by the almost 700 m long, monotonous, repetitive truss girder structure of the adjacent railway bridge. The new bridge will have to respond to all t... More

A11- Bruges

The integrated approach Between Bruges’ seaport and the city of Bruges itself we find the famous polder landscape of Western Flanders. Villages and farm fields, intersected by ditches, rivers and canals, are surrounded by the expanding port, industrial complexes and motorways. Architects ZJA and landscape architect Bart Smets provided the design and concept for the integration of the new A11 motorway along with all its civil engineering works that connect the hinterland directly to the seaport of Zeebrugge. The basic principle in this was an integrated approach, aiming for an optimum in several ways and prioritizing the beneficial coherence of all elements involved. A four-lane motorway, featuring an elevated roundabout, tunnels, a... More

Weguitbreiding A1/A6 Diemen – Almere Havendreef

Between Amsterdam and Almere It seems an odd question: is it possible to drastically improve the infrastructure of the northern part of the Randstad, between Diemen and Almere, and at the same time preserve the Dutch landscape and improve ecological values? The question becomes even more odd when one realizes that this entails a stretch of motorway of 23 kilometers, where extra lanes are added to the A1 and A6 and some 50 structures including bridges, ecoducts, bicycle tunnels, fly overs and even an aquaduct leading under a river are part of the plan. And yet, one can conclude that the answer to this odd question can be a resounding yes. This complex infrastructural landscape is part of a larger project to improve the connection between S... More

Fietsbrug, Tessenderlo

An additional bicycle bridge Cutting through the Flemish landscape near Beringen, just outside the city of Hasselt, the Albert Canal passes the town of Tessenderlo. The canal connects Liège and the eastern part of the country to the port of Antwerp, and is being adapted to the larger sizes and measures of contemporary inland shipping as part of a vast project. This not only leads to the enlargement of locks, but also to new and much higher bridges, to accommodate the new clearing height of 9.10 meter. Along the canal a series of new bridges will be built, designed by Laurent Ney and consisting of two arches leaning against each other. At Tessenderlo architects ZJA were asked to design an additional bicycle bridge over the Albert Ca... More
