Jan Waaijer Bridge

The crossing over rail and road allows for a high vantage point with great panorama’s, which is rare in Holland. The location is essentially Dutch: the surrounding landscape is man made. The existing Westerpark to the south (on top of a rubbish tip), the future N3MP park (which doubles as a water storage) and both traffic arteries. The landscape around the bridge is experienced from the space defined by the slender lighting posts. These support the deck, define the identity of the bridge and supply subtle lighting at night.
