Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>,

This summer I spent some time checking out recent bridges and other structures built in Belgium and the Netherlands, with a special focus on those designed by Laurent Ney and his firm Ney & Partners. I have to admit that I was deeply impressed by the ingenuity, fluidity and elegance of the designs, the attention to detail and the obvious wish of the designers that people linger and enjoy the bridge they are walking on. As usual, I took a great number of photographs of what I saw and hope that the images I selected capture the essence of the structures I visited. Of course plenty more photographs are available on Structurae.

Recent Structures in Belgium & The Netherlands

The last decade has seen quite a number of beautifully designed bridges with innovative structural systems. Many of the ones shown here are the work of Laurent Ney and his team, but there are also other design offices which create innovative structures around both countries.

Ooypoort Footbridge, Nijmegen
De Oversteek, Nijmegen
't Groentje, Nijmegen

New Bridges in Nijmegen

The above bridges are all located in the Dutch city of Nijmegen. The small arch bridge is a still rare example of an FRP arch bridge, while the large steel arch called De Oversteek is a beautiful tied-arch design by Ney & Poulissen crossing the Waal river. The road leading to that bridge is crossed by another Ney-designed bridge, 't Groentje.

Passerelle Céramique, Maastricht

Structures in Maastricht

The Céramique Footbridge crosses the Maas river in a single elegant arch of 164 meters. It was designed by Greisch.

Liège can boast a Calatrava-designed railroad station that is just as sleek as the Thalys trains that stop there.

Bridges by Ney & Partners across Belgium

Laurent Ney and his team have been busy designing bridges with all kinds of different structures as well as mechanisms for both pedestrians and vehicular traffic. They always seem to invite one to linger and explore their structure, take in the aesthetics and admire the amount of care that goes into every detail.
