II prize for the Tallinn Harbour Pedestrian Bridge competition proposal

For Tallinn Harbour Pedestrian Bridge competition Salto AB proposed a design called Golden Crane that would re-appropriate a historic harbour crane from a currently closed parking area of the harbour. On the one hand, cranes are typical elements of harbours. On the other hand, it suits perfectly for lifting the pedestrian bridge across the Admiralty basin, and as an attractive object can function as an independent viewing platform.

The new bridge will connect two large harbour terminals and will provide a better access to recreational crafts harbour. The bridge would be made of steel ferrous covered with translucent net and convertible LED lights. The spectacular Golden Crane would also function as a shelter and events’ space.
