Berlin is short of foot­bridges and yet has so many rivers and other in­ter­est­ing sites that are cry­ing out for a bridge. Work­ing with the Berlin Bridge De­part­ment the In­sti­tute of Con­cep­tual and Struc­tural De­sign at the TU Berlin have iden­ti­fied six cen­tral lo­ca­tions that are typ­i­cal of Berlin, and where foot­bridges are needed. So the “The world’s foot­bridges for Berlin” pro­ject be­gan. Par­tic­i­pants from all over the world had sub­mit­ted many cu­ri­ous, in­tel­li­gent, vi­sion­ary foot­bridge de­signs. The pre­cious col­lec­tion of 73 se­lected bridge de­signs are mapped in the mi­crosite “Bridge Finder”. A dig­i­tal com­pass to ex­plore the con­text of the pro­ject and the city. The Bridge Finder will help you find the clos­est lo­ca­tion, in­forms about the bridgedesigns in­vites to a walk­ing tour to the “World’s Foot­bridges for Berlin” sights.
