Wettbewerb Fussgängerbrücke Norimatt in Laufen – 2. Rang

Due to the flood protection project of the canton of Basel Landschaft, the city of Laufen wrote a competition for the replacement of the Norimattstegs by a bridge with a significantly longer span.

In order to symbolize the bridging between the Laufen areas of Norimatt and Nau, Blaser Architekten, in collaboration with the engineering firm Jauslin Stebler, proposed an arched bridge with a slightly curved lane. The elegant arch connects the existing ice rink and leisure hall with the settlements planned near the Birs.
