The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features a bridge that incorporates spaces for play, rest and planting. Brearley Architects + Urbanists (BAU) created a bridge connecting two areas of wetland across Shanghai’s Yuandang Lake. The 586-metre-long bridge for cyclists and pedestrians is a “hybrid structure”, blending architecture, infrastructure and landscape with the existing

Locating at Huan Garden of Zhong Shan, the project reaches the end of the road between the two forests, and there is a soil slope of over 1 meter high on the edge, with a concave groove at the place where the slope is formed. Looking along the forest path, your eyes are filled with tall bamboo, appearing more depth by the mottled bamboo shadow in the daytime.

Windesheim Bridges / NEXT architects

January 21, 2022 Valeria Silva 0

The monumental estate Windesheim has been enriched with eight new bridges, designed by NEXT architects. Together they make a series of recognizable connection points and seating areas on the walking route through the park. The elegant arch bridges appear and disappear in the landscape. The design is not a literal reconstruction, but an interpretation of the style characteristics of the historical heritage, with a modern, contemporary twist. Past and present come together.

Kalvarsky Most – Cyclist Bridge across the River Nitra / Strasky, Husty a partneri (SHP) + NOPS

January 12, 2022 Valeria Silva 0

The bridge connects pedestrian and cyclist trails situated along both banks of the River Nitra in a city of the same name. Due to local constraints the bridge structure with a very slender deck was required. Also, any load bearing members, such as pylons and cables, situated beyond the sidewalks were not allowed. Therefore, an economical tied arch structure, which represents a most logical solution, has been chosen. To allow an un-disturbing view of a historic centre of the city, the rise of the arches is as small as possible. To open the space and to invite using the bridge, the deck is suspended on outwards inclined arch ribs. In this way the river bridging received a modern, dynamic appearance.

Milan has committed itself to constructing 750 kilometres of bike paths by 2035 as part of a plan to make cycling the most convenient form of local transport. Based on data about the daily movements of residents, the Cambio network will link existing cycle paths and supplement them with new “super-cycle corridors” that will connect

The European Commission has proposed an overhaul of urban infrastructure to encourage more walking and cycling as part of the EU’s aim to become a net-zero continent by 2050. If passed, the Efficient and Green Mobility package would require the 424 largest cities in the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) to hash out sustainable urban mobility
