Description
In order to obtain the appropriate architectural design of the bridge across the river Vrbas in position of the special cultural, historical and ambient importance for Banja Luka (named “Settlement Dolac”), and to get quality concepts and conceptual solutions for planning and activating Urban zones in the immediate surroundings of the bridge, the city of Banja Luka is announcing the OPEN, INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION FOR THE ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN OF THE BRIDGE IN THE DOLAC SETTLEMENT IN THE CITY OF BANJA LUKA
Like any river, the river Vrbas connects and separates; like any river, it has two faces – the generous and pleasant one, which benefits the human community even without investing in the river, and the frightening one, when its force turns against this community. Both faces are reflected on the human need to cross it, to connect its banks for his benefit in his coexistence with the river… to establish one of the basic forms of his relationship to the river – crossing over.
Bridge is the intersection of this relationship…
A bridge over the river Vrbas in the village of Dolac, near Banja Luka fortress Kastel, will upgrade the townscape of the inner city center. The well-known scene of the fortress will become even better known with the presence of a bridge… from a star townscape, it will become by force of its importance and meaning – a superstar – a townscape for the future.
