Abstract: Jörg Schlaich is one of best structural designers in 20’s century. As the German representative after the World War II, Schlaich gave an suggestion on bridge design, which is bridges should be humanistic and multi-characters. Through the analysis of footbridges designed by Schlaich, the theoretical design source could be summarized in three aspects, such as influence from Bauhaus, Deutscher Werkbund and technological aesthetics, and lightweight construction advanced by Fritz Leonhardt.
