In contrast with the bulk
of adjoining stone water gates, the bridge is a light steel
construction, spanning the river in a single leap. The upper
surface serves car traffic, the future streetcar, and two-way
bicycle lane. The lower bridge serves pedestrians. The two-storey
concept provides enough static height to divide tensions into
slender constructive elements, a "spatial lace". The space
is not burdened by diverse accents, but allows for free flow
of water and air, so a two arch motive is introduced: the
lower permeates water, the upper dematerializes tectonics,
making the bridge float. The lower levels clearly direct the
user via constructions elements, their slenderness allows
for airy walking surface and close contact with water.
In the competition, the project received honorable mention.
