Pedestrian Bridge in Esch/Alzette (the second largest city in Luxembourg). The idea was to create a direct connection between the heart of the city and the green space (Park of Galgenberg).
The single volume is characterized by an uncluttered and minimalist design philosophy. The volume gesture clearly contrasts with the chaotic environment (overhead lines, power lines, boulevard, bus platforms and trains, roundabouts etc). The aesthetic of the project makes this bridge unique and creates a strong image for the station area.
