Pedestrian Bridges EXPO 2000

Hanover, Germany, 2000

It was the idea of the architect to provide these initially six bridges with different lengths and widths, out of which later four were built, with a homogeneous image.
His scenery of light masts was transformed by the engineers into a logical structural concept applying the principle of cable-stayed bridges - a successful symbiosis of architectural and engineering principles. All bridges are based on a grid of 7.5 x 7.5 m and are built of equal elements.
