In connection with the building of ‘The Rotterdam’ by OMA on the Wilhelminakade, the mooring place for cruise ships is being moved 120 metres to a point 60 metres outside the passenger terminal at the end of the Wilhelminapier. This created the need for a new, temporary passenger bridge for travellers on board the cruisers to go on land. Commissioned by the Stadsontwikkeling Rotterdam, TomDavid Architecten have designed a 60-metre-long construction whose look and quality are in tune with the impressive urban architecture of the Kop van Zuid.

TomDavid Architecten in association with ping-pong Design chose an aesthetic that is appropriate to the rough character of the Rotterdam docks. The basis of the bridge consists of a tried and tested steel construction on supports that refer to harbour cranes, and a tubular membrane of transparent canvas. By day the bridge is an eye-catcher, partly as a result of the unusual print on the translucent canvas. By night the construction takes on a completely different guise because the annular LED lighting moves slowly back and forth. Passengers entering Rotterdam will receive a beautiful first impression of the city.

Least troublesome building site of Rotterdam

The people of Rotterdam hardly believed their eyes for a moment in January, because the pedestrian bridge designed appeared overnight. The bridge was constructed in the Rotterdam docks by Birkhoff Staalbouw. At the beginning of January 2011 it was transported in its entirety on a floating sheerleg crane to the Wilhelminapier and raised to the quay, where a team assembled it in a couple of hours, making this without a doubt the least troublesome building site in the inner city.

The pedestrian bridge is located in a unique spot in Rotterdam, surrounded by architectural monuments. The client was aware of the particular context and thus susceptible to the following argument: “A temporary design on a special place has a similar impact on the city as a permanent design in an everyday place”. With this in mind, we chose strategy as the basis for our design instead of shaping.

By not deviating from an archetypal bridge (truss over multiple supports) we created leeway in the limited budget for three components which distinguish the design: skin, columns and lighting.

This ‘design strategy’ is made possible by means of a very good collaboration between the client, design team, user and constructer.

In addition, the temporality was used as a starting point for the development of these components. Therefore, the skin is made of sailcloth, the apparent mobility of the structure (port crane) and the lighting refers of a virtual presence.

The design for the façade is a game with image (raster), text (interaction) and distance (space). For the pedestrians on the other side of the river, the text is easy to read. For the people close to the bridge the text and the grid form an abstract pattern. The pedestrian bridge is the setting of coming and going. Every year, the city welcomes thousands of international cruise passengers. In shades and tints which reflects the air, the city and the water, a text is to discern. ‘Everywhere I am from here’ is the phrase to give a welcome feeling for everyone who arrives or departs. The city says ‘take me’ and ‘welcome’ simultaneously.
