The Solar bridge concept consists of building energy-saving living capsules within the old bridge construction. This decision / idea was inspired by Solar City Linz, situated nearby, and represents a natural continuation of its green architecture concept. Solar panels are placed on the bridge and on top of the capsules, in order to generate the electricity needed.
What is the name of your concept?
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 mouth of Traun River
What is the public function of your concept?
Solar bridge is connection between fast modern life and beautiful view over Danube river which arrange places for relax and pleasure. The housings are made of light aluminum composite materials, applicable in aircraft construction, so that they would not put much additional weight on the overall bridge construction. There is a park / garden in the centre of the bridge where the residents and their guests could have a walk.
How are the parts of the old railway bridge visible in your concept?
We have actually used the basic metal construction of the bridge, preserving its shape and looks.
