14.014 | Dejima Footbridge
This 40 m long steel footbridge with a timber deck presents a restrained design influenced by its material context and the intention to build modestly in this historical setting. The human scale but also the mainly wooden houses of Dejima define its character. Constructive simplicity was key in the design concept. Clamped to the mainland abutment, the bridge functions as a cantilever, on the Dejima side, so as to avoid the presence of major foundations on the Dejima side of the bridge. Oriental Consultants and Eau-landscape design were the Japanese partners for this project.
