This ‘tell a story’ text is based on the proposal we submitted in a competition for a pedestrian bridge over the Watersportbaan in Ghent, Belgium. The Watersportbaan is a 2,5 km rowing-course on the outskirts of the city. In our proposal we explained how we achieved an architectural design. We won the competition out of an 80+ candidates pool.
‘We’ is a team made up of two architects, Pieter D’haeseleer and Kristoffel Boghaert, Ghent, Belgium, three consulting engineering offices, namely engineers Haskins, Robinson, and Waters, now incorporating Jane Wernick Associates, London, UK, LIME, Ghent, Belgium, and the Faculty of Engineering Technology, KUL, Ghent, Belgium, as well as the Dutch landscape architect OMNA, Eede, the Netherlands.
