Urania Bridge

pedestrian and bike bridge in Vienna

Urania Bridge
Design for a pedestrian- and bicycle-bridge in the city center of Vienna opposite the famous Urania observatory. The assignment was to design a movable bridge in order to enable the Danube river-boats to turn at the spot in front of the bridge. The Urania Bridge is designed as “rolling bascule bridge” with the muse Urania as its counterweight.
