Bridge over Smedstadbäcken


One of the main ideas about Valla city is that diversity will permeate the new district at all levels. Variety is sought in place of a homogeneous neighbourhood. This requires a bridge that is an object in itself. It doesn’t try to blend in and adapt to other bridges or buildings in the area, but it is allowed to stand out in material, color and shape. At the same time, the bridge should be “simple” in the positive sense of the word, it should not take over the whole water room through excessive gestures.

The proposal is a brass shimmering steel bridge with a thin deck and perforated sheet railings which both help accentuate the overall shape and contribute to the structure’s light feel. The bridge has a total span of approximately 21.5 meters and 4 meters in width.
