Urban Pier

This competition-winning design proposed a new pedestrian bridge over the existing Muhlendamm Bridge in central Berlin. Relating to the tradition of inhabited bridges, the new structure provides for rest as well as movement by including elements such as newspaper kiosks and food stalls, the bridge becoming a public space in its own right. Fat produced the Urban Pier scheme in collaboration with the Munich artist Martin Schmidt and Stuttgart engineer Mathias Kutterer.
