In cooperation with the Architects Gerkan, Marg and Partner, we have jointly won the first prize in a restricted competition for the construction of a pedestrian and cycle bridge across the “Baaken” harbour basin in Hamburg.
Excerpt from the jury’s report: “The design succeeds in a surprisingly considered manner to bridge the gap between a compact ‘cable link’ and an elegant pedestrian and cycle crossing. The skilful interlocking of the external sheet metal for the protection of the loadbearing structure, the slightly asymmetrically arranged apex of the segmental arch and the corresponding clever railing configuration result in an aesthetically appealing structure which, at the same time, meets all technical requirements.”
