Pedestrian bridge from the future

Another unique architecture piece was created in Luxembourg. A pedestrian bridge in the city of Esch/Alzette which is the second biggest city after the capital Luxembourg. The object by architecture studio Metaform Architects has received an award for the building of the year 2010 from web site archdaily.com. The main idea was to create a direct connection between the heart of the city and green surroundings – Gelgenberg park. The bridge traverses a railway that has divided roughly these two areas. The design is very specific and unique characterized by minimalistic but organic form accentuated by contrasting colours. While the exterior is white, neutral, the interior is red, the contrast provides an aesthetic experience. People passing the bridge experience a glimpse of future. The object clearly contrasts with surrounding chaotic environment. The bridge has a unique energy that emits into the surrounding areas.
