Flint & Neill in Copenhagen bridge win

Consultant Flint & Neill and architect Studio Bednarski have won an international competition for a new pedestrian and cycle bridge over Copenhagen’s Inner Harbour, beating off nine other design teams including Zaha Hadid and Ramboll.

The bridge uses two slender, moving decks in combination with a sliding mechanism to maintain views across the harbour and shipping access.

“We deliberately avoided any structural gymnastics with masts and stays,” said Flint & Neill director Ian Firth. Copenhagen City Council is building the bridge, which is financed by AP Moller-Maersk Group, which also funded the new Copenhagen Opera House.
