Bridges Singelpark - 15.053

Program

Architectural and engineering mission

Concept

The brief of the municipality to design five pedestrian bridges in a park is exceptional. The bridges are intended for the Singelpark that forms a circle around the city. They will fulfill their classic role as connecting elements, but also have to be more than just that. They will be carry the identity of the park in a natural way. The challenge is to design a family of bridges that can provide an answer to all situations, to form one apparent geometrical, architectural and structural response for the specificity of each place.
