Nomination Rijnlands Architecture prize

Out of a long list of 60 projects, Joop van der Reiden bridge has been nominated for the Rijnlands Architecture Prize 2019. Quotes from the jury: The bridge is literally a beautifully balanced sculpture with a characteristic counterweight. The slender form responds well to the design assignment,  which required maximum visibility in the bend of the river.At first glance it is not clear that the bridge deck does not turn upwards, but rotates horizontally. The jury judges the bridge as a fine example of well-designed engineering art.
