‘Flux’ by Architecture Project presents a daring entry to Amsterdam's Iconic Pedestrian Bridge Competition, proposing a bridge that acts as an underpass to preserve the natural flow of the Amstel river.

In October last year, the City of Amsterdam launched an international competition to call for the best bridge design to adorn the heart of the “Venice of the North,” known for having one hundred kilometres of canals, about 90 islands and 1,500 bridges. To this end, Malta-based Architecture company Architecture Project has created “Flux,” a daring bridge concept that defies common knowledge–the firm envisions the bridge to go underneath the water, rather than above it, in order to preserve the natural water flow. The design proposes an overhead maritime passageway so pedestrians can enjoy crossing the Amstel river toward either the Hermitage Museum or the garden on the opposite bank.
