Skuru Bridge

DISSING+WEITLING architecture was awarded 1st prize in a prestigious international bridge contest in Stockholm to design a new bridge across Skuru Sound. DISSING+WEITLING architecture submitted a simple yet technically advanced design proposal for the new bridge which will solve an untenable traffic situation for people commuting to Stockholm, a figure exceeding 52,000 every day.

The new bridge will share the Sound with the existing Skuru Bridge which is a copy of the original arch bridge from 1914. At that time, it was the largest concrete bridge in Northern Europe. The original bridge has major cultural, historical and architectural value, and it has gained iconic status among bridge experts around the world. At the same time, this strong, almost monumental structure co-exists in glorious harmony with the steep, rocky slopes and tiny houses of the Archipelago.

With this important context in mind, DISSING+WEITLING decided to develop a design with a very simple and transparent visual expression. Therefore, the architects produced a design proposal without towers, cables or viewing platforms. The bridge has a structural lightness with a slender, aerodynamic deck in steel, and it is made as transparent as possible by, for example, aligning the piers of the new bridge with those of the existing bridge. This creates a connection between the two structures, and the new bridge will not block the view of the old.

 

Skurubron

DISSING+WEITLING vandt designet for den kommende Skurubro ved Stockholm med en bro i et enkelt og transparent udtryk, der udviser stor respekt for den ikoniske nabobro.

DISSING+WEITLINGs team vandt den internationale konkurrence om en meget omtalt ny bro over Skurusundet. DISSING+WEITLING havde satset på et enkelt og teknisk avanceret designforslag til den nye bro der skal løse en uholdbar trafiksituation for de mere end 52.000 daglige pendlere til Stockholm.

Den nye bro skal dele sundet med den eksisterende Skurubro der er en kopi af den oprindelige buebro fra 1914. Broen var dengang Nordeuropas største betonbro. Den tillægges stor kulturhistorisk og arkitektonisk værdi og har opnået ikonstatus blandt verdens broeksperter. Samtidig indgår dens stærke, nærmest monumentale udtryk i en slående æstetisk samstemthed med skærgårdens klippeskråninger, høje træer og små huse. Og det er den kontekst der har motiveret DISSING+WEITLINGs team til at
udvikle det meget enkle og transparente visuelle udtryk. Projektet er derfor uden brotårne, kabler, skråstag eller udsigtsplatforme.

Broen har en konstruktiv lethed med det slanke, aerodynamiske dæk i stål og er gjort så transparent som mulig ved bl.a. at placere bropillerne på linje med de eksisterende. På den måde relaterer den nye bro sig til den gamle uden at hindre udsigten til den.
