Description
The competition involves the preparation of architectural concepts for a pedestrian and cycle bridge joining the banks of the Vistula River in the vicinity of Karowa and Okrzei Streets.
The aim of the competition is to select the best architectural concept for the pedestrian and cycle bridge in architectural, visual, functional, communication and economic terms.
The task included in the competition consists of the preparation of an architectural concept of a pedestrian and cycle bridge, on the basis of the Terms and Conditions and content-based appendices. The concept should be prepared according to the guidelines concerning transport and water management presented below. Apart from the solutions in terms of the architecture and structure of the bridge, the concept should outline the methods for the efficient connection of bridge abutments with existing and prospective transport routes located on both river banks.
The bridge concept must be characterised by high-quality architecture, with particular attention to detail. The facility should be incorporated into the city panorama, and constitute a landmark, through the use of innovative architectural thought, giving the facility a unique and original touch, highlighting its exceptional nature and significance. At the same time, attention must be paid to the existing directions of viewing axes; the bridge's structure should appear on the city's panorama from the right river bank in thought-out and neutral way.
