Juhana Marttinen Architects / Projects / Turku Pedestrian Bridge

The City of Turku organised an invited competition for the design of a pedestrian bridge crossing river Aura. The site is historically valuable and the scenery is easily disturbed. We designed a slender bridge, which would blend in the surroundings, but at the same time would be a work of art in itself. The surface of the bridge is alive with subtle reflections of the surroundings.The winner of the competition can be found here.
