LIGNAMATIC Projects: Elevated bridge

This unique pedestrian passageway with an oval cross-section joins sections of a trade centre in Hamburg, Germany. It was built with timberwork by Holzbau Amann GmbH and their LIGNAMATIC in 2006.

Using the LIGNAMATIC, Holzbau Amann specializes in unusually-shaped wooden structures from towers to churches. You can see many more projects on their website (in German only; explore the links under "Ingenieur Holzbau" for a variety of engineered wooden structures).
