Jiangxia Park Bridge Ningbo China, design by ipv Delft

Ningbo bridge selected for Round 2

America based landscape design office American G&D Group asked us to collaborate with them for a park design competition in the Chinese city of Ningbo. A substantially long pedestrian bridge was part of the project, and G&D Group asked us to deliver the bridge design. The total park design, of which our bridge is part, recently went through to the final five. This shows us that our subtle and timeless designs suit China just as much as they do the Netherlands.

Project details can be found on the G&D Group website.

NEP Bridge competition London

In collaboration with Dutch engineering firm Witteveen+Bos and Winchester based Adams Hendry Consulting Ltd , we entered the Nine Elms to Pimlico Bridge competition. Ours was one of over 80 entries and unfortunately wasn’t shortlisted. The jury stated we were ‘another strong team’ and that ‘there was a recognition that this design is aspirational’. We proposed a very slender single span bridge made of fiber reinforced composite, a spiraling ramp at either side and transformation of the landings into attractive recreational areas.
