Footbridges are designed to carry pedestrians or cyclists mainly, so that structural and functional requirements may perhaps be less complex than, for example, for railway bridges or road bridges. However, this does not make the footbridges any less interesting. Rather, this creates possibilities that — combined with the right amount of imagination and sensitivity — result in an amazing variety of different designs.
Structurae contains over 4,000 footbridges worldwide! Here are just a few examples of remarkable footbridges with a special focus on pedestrian and cycle bridges located in Madrid, where next year's footbridge conference will be held from 23 to 25 September 2020. The call for papers is open now!
