In the design studio we mainly want to work on the connection of the three areas crossing the river, enabeling the region to literally grow together. The development of a linking bridge is central to the task of the studio, not only as an infrastructural element for pedestrians and cyclists, but as a public space, creating a platform for different events.
We are less interested in how the bridge would work constructively, but more in how it would connect the different parts of the city and therefor in its anchor points: What will spacially and programmatically happen in and through the connection of the bridge with the city of Huningue on the French side of the river, and its rather precarious condition. How will the foot of the bridge connect vertically to the newly to be created island on the former harbor area of Basel and how will the island be developed consequently. How will the bridge touch Basel and what will happen below the bridge on these entrances?
