Pedestrian and cycle footbridge under the Adolphe Bridge
by CBA Architects

This four-metre wide path for pedestrians and cyclists by architecture studio CBA hangs underneath the Adolphe Bridge in Luxembourg.

The footbridge has a lightweight steel system to create a path beneath the 153-metre-long Adolphe bridge, which is located in the heart of the city centre and is protected by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage Site. The bridge was built in 1903 and is one of Luxembourg City's most important architectural structures. The project was in response to the brief given to Christian Bauer, who leads the local architecture studio, to create a pathway in the space between the two sets of arches that support the bridge.
