This beautiful pedestrian bridge over the newly built Highway H10 in Corcelles-Cormondrèche, in the western French speaking part of Switzerland was designed by the local architectural practice maison d’art’chitecture. The overpass consists of two major elements: one the one hand the ponton-like ramp made from concrete and worked stone from the Jura Mountains – on the other hand the actual gangway constructed from glued-laminated timber. The dynamic shape of the bridge goes back to the existing inclination of the constrcution site and the winding street trading.
