AC/CA iconic bridge, competition

ENG 

The aim of the international AC-CA[AMSTERDAM] ICONIC BRIDGE competition focussed on designing an iconic pedestrian/bicycle bridge in the heart of Amsterdam. The challenge of designing an Iconic bridge in times of financial crisis (2012) made us re-think the concept. Instead of looking for innovative, hyper-modern and ornamental shapes, we developed a concept that is closely related to the Amsterdam/Dutch culture and mentality: uncomplicated and straight forward. The famous ‘Iamsterdam’ should be more than a wellknown slogan. By transforming it into a three dimensional solution and adding a architectural program: the bridge, users can actually become Amsterdam: I am Amsterdam. The glass pavilion on the riverbank accommodates the requested functions of cafe and bike-shop.
