Specifics: The Mayor Letschert bridge near Tilburg, designed by Queeste architects, has a special construction. The bridge sections are covered with a Raficlad plating of composite panels. The panels exhibit a random fiber structure in a soft green color.
In 2009, Queeste architects won the tender for a new bridge over the Wilhelminakanaal in Tilburg. The design gives shape to the demand to build a special bridge in a landscape valuable area. Attention to the ecological value and the significance of the landscape were therefore the starting point for the design process.
The bridge consists of a composition of three separate bridge sections: a traffic bridge consisting of two identical bridge sections and an eco bridge. The bridge is covered with a soft green plating of composite panels with a wavy fiber structure.
The road bridge is located on two rows of columns. The eco bridge is supported by an elegantly shaped pylon. The bridge makes new connections between water, nature and landscape. This is visible both in the surrounding landscape and from the new bridge. Not the bridge is at the forefront, but the experience of the landscape.
The bridge supports the stated ambitions that the municipality of Tilburg has for the 21st century with regard to sustainability, innovation and the strengthening of the landscape quality. On 16 May 2012, a bridge was festively opened and it was named Mayor Letschertbrug.
