Fast + Epp GmbH runner up in German bridge competition
May 16, 2012
Fast + Epp Frankfurt’s bridge design won second prize at a recent design competition hosted by the Würzburg State Building Authority.
The design team — led by Darmstadt-based firm prosa architekten — was awarded €8,000 for its efficient and economical “Campusbrücke Würzburg” submission, which uses a single piece of prefabricated form work to produce identical cast-in-place reinforced concrete modules.
When constructed, these repeating modules create a uniquely-twisting warped bicycle and pedestrian bridge that spans 35-metres and connects the Bavarian university’s north and south campuses.
