Hising Bridge

The Hising Bridge will be a landmark for Gothenburg. Aesthetically and literally connecting the city and its vital harbor. The bridge will become an icon for the harbour and for urban development in the city. The ‘Arpeggio’ relates to its surroundings, the city and the harbour, where the towers and raising midsection creates new views accross the harbor front.

The bridge has a budget of 1 billion Swedish kroner and will span over the central part of Scandinavia’s most significant commercial harbor. The bridge is ca. 350 meters long and has a spectacular midsection, which can be raised 30 meters above the water, carried by four distinctive towers.It will become a bridge in central Gothenburg, a street within the city that will lead across the Göta Älv (Göta River) and bind the river shores together. The bridge shall contribute to a development of the central city on both banks of the river and help to create a strong region where even the shipping is provided in the future.

A total of 24 teams applied for the competition. DISSING+WEITLING designed the winning proposal in collaboration with engineering firms ELU of Sweden and Leonhardt, Andrä und Partner of Germany. The bridge’s remarkable lighting design is by Ljuskontoret (now ÅF Lighting).

 

Hisingsbron

Med sit markante design og sin vigtige funktion har Hisingsbroen potentiale til at blive Gøteborgs nye vartegn og en katalysator for byens ambitiøse udvikling.

Hisingsbroen kommer til at spænde over den centrale del af skandinaviens mest betydningsfulde kommercielle havn og forbinde det centrale Gøteborg med Hisingen. Broen er 350 m lang og har et spektakulært midterfag, der båret af fire markante tårne kan løftes 30 m over vandspejlet.

Hisingsbron forholder sig til stedet, den store skala, det store rum, vandet og byen. En ny stor konstruktion, der skriver sig ind som en del af byens ambitiøse byudvikling og bliver et nyt vartegn for Göteborg. Broen relaterer sig til omgivelserne, byen og havnen, skaber åbne kig med sine store spænd. Æstetik, der relaterer sig til skibe og havneinventar – de store kraner.

“The Hising Bridge is not only a bridge. It is a link between people and city districts. It is one piece of the puzzle in the overall plan for the city’s development: a portal for shipping and a landmark for Gothenburg.”

DISSING+WEITLING stod for udformningen af vinderforslaget i samarbejde med det svenske ingeniørfirma ELU og Leonhardt, Andrä und Partner fra Tyskland.
