Urban Screens
Keeping the architectural memory of the old bridge by creating 'shelters' of activities
1/6

Solution

Re-using its structure in the vertical way, with a vertical garden, an open air cinema and a climbing zone, and in the horizontal way, by creating a cluster of activities such as skate / bmx park, sitting / relaxing areas, playground and a river viewing point, floating above it! 'Urban Screens' are created with two parts of the old bridge, placed in the port area. They create a landmark, keeping the architectural memory of the old bridge.

What is the name of your concept?

Urban Screens

Which of the three suggested areas are you choosing for your concept? (the Donaulände public park, the port area or the mouth of Traun River)?

The port area

What is the public function of your concept?

It is a recreation area for the people living or visiting Linz. It offers activities for all ages, while keeping the architectural memory of the old bridge. The two urban screens are 'clusters' of activities and could be well combined with a park in that area, that is so close to the river.

How are the parts of the old railway bridge visible in your concept?

Two whole parts of the old bridge are kept and moved to the port area, keeping all their structural elements.
