IDEA:Our solution arises from the urban planning concept dominated by a busy pedestrian area in Radićeva street. In an attempt to connect two pedestrian areas on two river banks, the idea of a bridge as a visual part of the pedestrian zone came about. Our idea of this bridge is a pedestrian communication the paving of which fits into the pedestrian area on both river banks. As such, this bridge should have its proper lighting and rest areas/benches, and with the paving and lighting solutions it would fit into the pedestrian areas.
