The 13 meter long wooden bridge like construction is hoisted in place in the open public space in Kongens gate by the historic harbour in Trondheim and the old warehouses. The construction protrudes several meters out into the river Nidelven. From here people may admire the rows of warehouses on both sides of the river from a new angle. NTNU students have built the bridge on assignment of The Municipality of Trondheim. The bridge plays an important part in the effort to activate Kjøpmannsgata in the centre of one of the most important tourist attractions in Trondheim.
The NTNU students John Haddal Mork and Andres Gunnleiksrud have created the bridge on the drawing board, worked close to SINTEF on the construction and done the manual work building the bridge together with Snekkeriet Verdal. They have worked with the same digital model all through the process. It makes it much easier for the various professional groups to work close together. An instructive and inspiring process for all involved.
In August the same students will arrange a DesignAndMake workshop with the intention to build a wooden staircase in the same area. It will open up the public space even more for everyone.
