Second prize in a bridge competition in Gothenburg, Sweden, by visiondivision

Second prize in a bridge competition in Gothenburg, Sweden, by visiondivision

Swedish architects visiondivision won the second prize on a bridge competition in Sweden a couple of years ago with their Bird Bridge. A bit old, yet cool (if someone knows who won the first prize, please let us know).

The site is located in a beautiful untouched forest with old leaf trees in a small rift with a stream at the bottom. This patch of forest lies between The Botanical Gardens and Sahlgrenska, the major hospital in Gothenburg. The bridge would appear as a white hovering line made in plexiglass that slightly reflects the beautiful landscape, which is carried by the tree pillars that disappears in the surrounding nature.
