Arup wins Dutch bridge design competition

Arup Amsterdam and Benthem Crouwel Architekten have teamed up to produce a winning bridge design for the Ponte Palazzo footbridge in Den Bosch in the Netherlands.

The bridge will connect the Paleiskwartier area and the old city centre. The bridge is designed as a park above the city, similar to the Highline in New York and the Promenade Plantée in Paris. Entrances to new buildings connect with the bridge which is conceived as an urban park.

A composite weathered steel and concrete structure was chosen for the 260m long deck.

The jury enthusiastically stated that “the robust appearance in combination with the chosen colour and material is a monumental design that fits the city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch”.
