In 2013 Knippers Helbig won together with the architects from Gerkan, Marg and Partners (gmp) the
competition for the new footbridge across the Baakenhafen in Hamburg. Now four years later the bridge has
been completed in the heart of Hafencity.
The process we are describing is an interdisciplinary design approach considering project specific goals which have been identified in the early design phase. These goals lead to the definition of project parameters which focus all members of the design team on the most important issues during the design process.
Based on our bridge project across the Baakenhafen we describe the identification of its project parameters and the resulting static and structural responses.
