The bridge envisioned across river Drava in the Slovenian cit of Maribor is a pure delight. The bridge combines unmatchable aesthetics with functionality in public infrastructure. The concept is both simple and dynamic. In a seemingly weightless fashion the bridge gently bends to rise after elegantly skimming the water surface. The span broadens at its lowest point to facilitate recreational space for city dwellers.
The tiered water side space also provides safe transit across the river for both cyclists and pedestrians. Fabricated from steel tubes and sharp frames the cultural infrastructure by Buro Happold promises to be a great waterside recreational space.
