Wrocław University of Science and Technology students win an international architectural competition


Wrocław University of Science and Technology students won the international competition of the Ideasforward portal “24H Architecture Competiton”. The competition task was to prepare a bridge design. The concept had to be unique in terms of architecture, use ecological solutions and refer to the Portuguese tradition.  

Students from Wrocław designed a 6.5 km long bridge, suspended at a height of 70 m, with separate zones for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. Part of the project is the ‘life zone’ – a glass sphere in the center of the structure filled with plants classified as endangered species in Portugal. For hikers and cyclists, it would be a place for a short rest, relaxation among greenery and an opportunity to look at the endangered flora.

The authors of the concept of the bridge over the Tagus River are: Mikołaj Kałużny, Maja Klawitter, Kornel Kurtys, Maria Opłatek and Bartłomiej Tuczapski. They had 24 hours to develop the whole design.
