Conceptual Design of a Footbridge Over the Warta River in Poznań
The presented footbridge connects the centre of Poznań with Ostrów Tumski Island and the campus of the Poznań University of Technology.
The bridge consists of two parts: an object over the Warta River and an object over the Cybina (the Warta Canal). The paper describes in detail the part located on the Warta River, which has an arched structure. It is a steel structure with the following span lengths: 28.50 + 17.00 + 60.00 + 40.00 + 6.50 m. The elevation of arches is equal to 23.00 and 19.00 m. The design attached a lot of attention to the symbolism of the object. The result is an interesting structure with great aesthetic and functional qualities. The paper will present the construction of the object and its architectural values.
