Structure 2
Pedestrian Bridge over the river Rhine in Köln

Project status: survey 2007
Team: smo architektur
Location: Cologne - Germany
Area: 6150 m2
Costs: 12000000,00 €

Lightly, immaterially, ascetically, structure 2 crosses the Rhine, like an invitation to elude the city, to pass the river silently, to linger between sky and water. Structure 2 is a fictional project, which is dedicated to the city of Köln and seeks to follow up its long-standing history of bridges.
The structure of the bridge is at once sculptural element and frame, and is subdevided into two zones. In the lower part the linear movement of visitors is rhythmized by treadmills and stairs, whereas in the upper part, attractive lounge areas like cafés, restaurants and panorama decks form atipoles of tranquility.
