In this competition, we ask participants to design a cycling bridge in the context of Amsterdam, an effective connection over the river Ij for pedestrians and cyclists – 1 design expressed in 3 drawings.

The Netherlands are renowned for their popular biking culture, which made the country a world reference when it comes to cycling infrastructure. The city of Amsterdam embeds the value of slow mobility and biking, but today it lacks a cross river connection for cyclists and pedestrians.

As designers, how can we think of a bridge that would match the conflicting interests of citizens and autorities? How can a bridge become an architectural icon for the waterfront of Amsterdam?

Amsterdam Cycling Bridge aims to answer those questions by inviting designers to create solutions that might visualize new/old opportunities and challenges, bringing the realization of a bridge one step closer.
