Galvani Bridge

The goal of the New Danube Bridge design competition was to offer an opportunity  to create a new built environmental and cityscape construction that provides a hitherto missing network connection in the urban structure of Southern Budapest, and simultaneously becomes a new symbol of Budapest in accordance with the contemporary formal language of timeless architecture.  The Client, KKBK Zrt., announced an international design tender by invitation, in which we participated as the manager of the contest for designs.


17 entries were sent to the contest, by renowned domestic and foreign design agencies. The Jury awarded the first prize to the joint entry of the design offices UN Studio and Burohappold Engineering, who also dreamed up the Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam, with whom the Client started preparing the permit plans for the bridge after the design contest.
