2nd in Radofzell at the Bodensee

DKFS together with Schüssler-Plan Frankfurt (Projekt Engineering Leads: Ingo Weißer & Thomas Niwinski ) won 2nd place in the competition for the design of a new bridge in Radofzell at the Bodensee in south Germany.  DKFS with Schuessler- Plan will be invited for negotiation procedure to build new structure on the border to Switzerland.  

The new bridge connects the historic center of Radofzell with the shore of the Bodensee. It is an efficient as well as elegant structure, which is held by two torsion boxes on the inside of the gently sloping access ramps doubling as bench. The ramp facing the lake forms a balcony over the water from where the passer-by can enjoy views across the lake towards the Swiss alps.

The international competition attracted proposals from leaders in their field like Wilkinson Eyre Architects and Schlaich Bergermann und Partner, Stuttgart. Negotiations are intended to start soon. 

Team: Dirk Krolikowski, Falko Schmitt, Ryan Blackford, Michael Scheuvens, Alex Bramhill, Ingo Weißer, Thomas Niwinski
