Foot- and cycle path bridge

Heidelberg, 2007 / 1st prize / stopped after design phase

The bridge connects the Heidelberg districts of Kirchheim and Rohrbach, which are separated by the railway tracks, for pedestrians and cyclists. The ramps, caused by the desired accessibility, overcome the height in several serpentines. On the more urban west side the curves are very narrow, while they end in wide curves towards the more scenic east side. For pedestrians, two centrally located stairs create a convenient shortcut. The bridge rests as a slim white concrete slab on centrally arranged mushroom-shaped supports, the railing is slightly indented from the edge and is staged by concealed LED lights.
