Innovative Pedestrian Bridges and Their Construction Details

Innovative Pedestrian Bridges and Their Construction Details

There has been increasing awareness in recent years of the importance of infrastructure for pedestrians. These additions to the urban environment improve the quality of cities by connecting spaces and shortening travel distances, and their introduction can be beneficial not only to pedestrians but also to cyclists seeking a more environmentally friendly method of transport.

In order to encourage the use of pedestrian infrastructure, here we present footbridges designed by architecture offices and structural engineers, alongside their construction details, to showcase innovative solutions in terms of materials, forms, and structures.
