Bridge between bridges | city of Zwolle

The city of Zwolle was designing two low-traffic bridges that would lead pedestrians and cyclists from the urban environment to the countryside. They wanted artists to create a design that would conceptually and visually connect these two bridges.

In our research on and in the specific landscape, we drew a line between the two bridges that appeared to be a disappeared road. This road connected many historical objects in the landscape by offering a direct view on them.

Using clay, we reconstructed this historical line as the conceptual and visual connection between the two bridges.
