Schanerloch Bridge

Austrian architecture firm Marte Marte architekten designs the Schanerloch Bridge after the common form of the stone arch, minimizing it to a tangential curve with a twist that connects the radiused roads on either side of the river Dorbirner Ache. The reinforced concrete structure spans the gorge for which it is named, creating the pass between the city of Dornbirner and the Hamlet of Ebnit. The volume itself is static, but the design evokes ideas of motion within its subtle confines. When seen from the driver’s point of view, the dramatic form is hardly noticeable, but from the vantage point of the river, it stands out against the organic silhouette of the scenic gorge.
