The program for this international ideas competition challenges participants to design a new Contemporary Bridge to carry pedestrians over the River Spree in Berlin. The new footbridge should create a new Icon or landmark in Berlin, considering that there are a number of existing examples of great bridge forms in this area of the city and its proposed position between two well-known bridges – the Schilling Bridge (Schillingbrucke) and the Oberbaum Bridge (Oberbaumbrucke).

SOLID architecture designed a bridge that is enclosed on all sides to connect the two buildings Rennweg 44 and 46 at the fifth upper floor, 17 metres above the Kleistgasse in the third district of Vienna. The bridge with a span length of 22 metres was completed in May 2009.
10 DESIGN and Buro Happold have won the international design competition for the key signature gateway bridge for the new Shizimen Business District in Zhuhai, China.
The feature bridge is the gateway entry to south China’s new planned commercial hub and also marks the connection of the Shizimen Canal to the Pearl River Delta.
Working together in one of their first collaborations the 10 and Buro Happold team set out to create a simple and elegant structural solution for a bridge that would be a visual focal point both within the Shizimen District itself and along the Pearl River Delta coastline.
That cannot be a bridge.
The open international idea competition for pedestrian bridge in the heart of Amsterdam prompted us to ask ourselves a question – how to combine in one building several elements that would result in designing a unique and outstanding bridge.
The name of the competition – Iconic Bridge made us seek ideas with a strong formal expression and unconventional functional and technical solutions. Organizers also defined number of functional requirements that had to be met – among others, the bridge had to ensure freedom of vessels movement on the river and make it possible to arrange café bar and bicycle repair area on the bridge.

The city of Valencia is suffering an economic and cultural development very important in recent years, which is resulting in a recycling process model and growth of the city. Among many other projects, perhaps the most ambitious is finally connecting Valencia to the sea. The southern part of the river is beginning to consolidate, and instead, the north, take longer, since you have to remodel and recycling, an urban and consolidated.
As part of a park competition in Kiev – Ukraine, Maxwan resolved a missing gap in the primary pedestrian path. The solution goes beyond merely creating a bridge. It strives to create a signature place, within the park. It avoids any of the assumed formal or structural gestures. By doing so, it creates an almost non-bridge.
