The new pedestrian and cyclist bridge in Böheimkirchen, Lower Austria, is the result of the development of a historic structural system, namely Howe's lattice girder, with simple diamond panels. The variable inclination of the diagonals and the glued timber joints make it possible to create a modern version of a classic construction.
