02 BUDAPEST WIN­NING EN­TRY

Identity - - PORTFOLIO -

A new road, tram, pedes­trian and cy­cle bridge across the Danube in south­ern Budapest is to be de­signed by UNS­tu­dio. The Dutch prac­tice, along with BuroHap­pold En­gi­neer­ing, over­came 16 ri­vals to win an in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion with a pro­posal for a 500-me­tre ca­ble-stayed struc­ture with a main span of 220 me­tres. The jury re­port stated: “From an ur­ban de­sign point of view, this is the most well thought-out en­try. The bridge would be both an ar­chi­tec­tural and cityscape sym­bol, but is si­mul­ta­ne­ously a tra­di­tional and func­tional bridge struc­ture that does not im­pinge on its en­vi­ron­ment.”
