It certainly is competition season! DKFS have won the international competition for a new 430m bridge in Castrop-Rauxel near Essen Germany coined ‘The Big Scarf’ by local press.  It was great working with our engineers SP Düsseldorf and Smeets Landscape architects on this. An exciting project as the innovative structural system spans over the existing Rhein-Herne Canal which in turn bridges over a river already on site. Our new bridge will feature the complex existing infrastructure project and connect to the banks with seating platforms. The international shortlist included practices such as Wilkinson Eyre UK and Feichtinger FR. Commendations go to sbp Berlin as well to Marc Mimram, Paris.  We share the win with winning group HRA Berlin as well as MLP/J2M from Munich and enter into a negotiation process. Happy Days!
