This paper is all about the inspirational design of the Hovenring, a circular cable-stayed bridge in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. It’s a perfect example of what can be achieved when designers and structural engineers truly join forces. Many elements of the bridge’s structure were custom made to fit the initial design concept as conceived by bridge design office ipv Delft. Several significant issues had to be dealt with during the design and engineering phase, such as spatial integration and user comfort, and the structural concept especially required an open mind and a lot of calculations. Furthermore, there was the issue of wind-induced vibration, that caused the bridge to be closed off only weeks after it had been put in place. And a lot of thought and effort went into important details such as cable anchorage as well as the lighting design. The close collaboration between designers, engineers and other parties involved paid off, as the final result has received worldwide appraisal and couldn’t be more powerful.
