Pier Bridge

DISSING+WEITLING architecture won the 2006 competition for a new bridge over the River Nid in Trondheim, Norway. The River Nid Bridge forms a part of the new ring road which will lead traffic round Trondheim's city centre. The bridge is a bascule design with a free span of 16 metres, two road lanes as well as pedestrian and cycle paths cantilevered from the longitudinal box girders. The bascule's two fins repeat the triangular figures from the box girders supports and contribute both to a substantial lightening of the structure and to the bridge's characteristic, pronounced profile. At night the bridge is lit by fittings integrated in the handrails.

 

Pirbrua

DISSING+WEITLING architecture vandt i 2006 konkurrencen om en ny bro over den norske Nidelva i Trondheim. Nidelva-broen er en del af den nye ringvej som skal lede trafikken uden om Trondheims bymidte. Broen er udformet som en klapbro med en fribredde på 16 meter, to vejbaner samt fodgænger- og cykelbaner udkraget fra de langsgående hoveddragere. Broklappens to finner gentager trekantfiguren fra brodragerens understøttelse og bidrager såvel til en betydelig lettelse af konstruktionen som til broens samlede, markante profil. Broen er om natten oplyst af armaturer integreret i håndlisterne.
