10.018 | Smedenpoort Footbridges
The bridges have been designed as a ‘promenade’ around the existing gate tower. The path has been conceived as an element that embraces the existing bridge and building. The supporting elements have a reduced dimension due to the amount of anchor points and the structural use of the parapet. This also creates the effect of an extremely transparent structural design. The structure is constructed in weatherly steel and the walking surface will be made out of concrete. The use off full steel bars and the proposed details refer to the hand-made blacksmithing.
