Timber art bridge 'Aubrugg', Opfikon

Unique structure in Opfikon

The main support consists of six continuous arches – one floor arch each on the left and right, left and right pressure arches and the attached side arches. The upper arches absorb the compressive forces and the lower ones the tensile forces. Glue-laminated larch timber was used for the entire support structure. The pedestrian surface was made of oak from Opfikon forest. We always strive to use Wood from the region. The bridge is covered by a white membrane roof made of a high-tech
foil material.
