1st place for a new footbridge in Erfurt

We are pleased to announce that, together with DKFS Architects (London) and the landscape architects SINAI from Berlin, we won the competition for the design of a new bridge in Erfurt. The pedestrian and cycle bridge is to be completed by 2021 and to replace an existing construction built in GDR times. The design is an important part of the planned expansion of Erfurt’s city center related to the district development of “ICE-City”.


With a clear bridge design as well as with the urban development framework plan, the quality of urban space shall be emphasized. The fanning steel structure provides a short and a long side, offering pedestrians and cyclists barrier-free crossing of the so-called Gera-Flutgraben or the busy avenue Stauffenbergallee with its planned tramway. Wide steps and panoramic stairways provide views over the area’s greenery.
