Text description provided by the architects. The program for the road stop is benches, toilet, waste bin and a wind shed. It is also the start of a trail to a waterfall in the end of the wally. The path was originally on the parking side, with a run down bridge crossing the river further up. 

The new bridge was our proposal; it works as a sign towards the trail, while at the same time taking care of all the demanded functions. It is leading on to an older trail, crossing the soft, green carpet of vegetation in the midst of the river deltae.

By placing all the program in the bridge, the road stop installation is now a distinct object placed in the landscape. This felt appropriate for the rough and grand nature of the site, rather than small furniture placed around or in the ground.

The bridge is making a turn, leading to the trail. This also makes room for benches on top of it. On the bent side, the steel frame is made 3-dimensional because of the torsion-forces. The steel frame was prefabricated. Minimizing work on site is beneficial in this climate. Inside, where people is going to sit or lean, the bridge is clad with wood that will become gray.
