Cyclists encounter very different bridge on London Quietway
A new bridge in the Dutch city of Utrecht has been designed to combine with a roof garden over a local school. Dafne Schippers Bridge, designed by NEXT Architects, features a gently curving ramp which will take cyclists through some park and onto the roof of the school’s gym before crossing the Amsterdam-Rhine Canal.
Describing the creation, NEXT architects’ Marijn Schenk said: “In one fluid movement, the cycle route, park, and school are brought together to form a cohesive whole of infrastructure, architecture, and landscape.”
