Description


Dresden, Germany, 2007

The main challenge of the design for the Waldschlösschen bridge in Dresden is to create an infrastructural connection that spans a length of 800 meters, crossing the widest parts of the Elb flood plain. The bridge is designed as an integral part of this landscape. From the banks of the surrounding area, wide transitions taper to establish an interconnecting network for the continuous flows of the diverse users. The asymmetric and topographic shape of the bridge evolves from its inherent conditions, such as directionality, connectivity and vistas, whilst simultaneously integrating the bridge into the outlines of the undulating landscape. In addition to highlighting the structural lightness of the bridge, the pattern of perforations accentuates the visual affinity with the varying landscape levels surrounding the structure. UNStudio
