Ali sull’acqua — Wings on the waves Il ponte ciclo-pedonale di Lille Langebro si aggiunge agli altri elementi d’architettura che caratterizzano il waterfront di Copenhagen. La geometria curva del ponte assconda le mura storiche e il fossato dello Christianshavn, sull’altra riva. Le ali che modellano la sagoma del ponte determinao straordinari effetti di luce e di oombre, offrendo una vista spettacolare quando i due monconi si aprono per far passare le navi. LILLE LANGEBRO, Wilkinson Eyre #wilkinsoneyre #lillelangebro #tempodacqua #thetimeofwater The Lille Langebro cycle and pedestrian bridge enhances Copenhagen’s waterfront. It seamlessly connects the vista down Vester Voldgade from the City Hall to the harbour and onward across the water to Christianshavn on the Langebrogade quayside. The bridge follows an elegant curve in plan which aligns with and continues the sweeping ramparts and moat of the historic Christianshavn beyond the opposite bank. The structure is arranged as a triangular wing on either side of the bridge that dips below the deck at the abutments then gradually soars up at midspan in a sinuous curve before falling again.
