Footbridge 2017

For the 6th International Footbridge Conference we welcome you to Berlin from September 6th to 8th 2017. As with the preceding events in Paris, Venice, Porto, Wroclaw and London, bridge designers and builders from all over the world will come together to share their views, to exchange ideas, to learn and to meet colleagues and friends.

Footbridges are an important component of our built environment, they can add much to the culture of building and they are exciting to work on as they bring together experts from numerous disciplines, such as civil engineers and architects, artists, landscape designers and lighting experts.
This sixth conference will follow in the footsteps of earlier conferences in that the theme of structural dynamics – Dynamics and Innovation – which triggered the first conference in Paris, will be kept on the agenda. What is new to this conference is that there are two themes which we have identified as stimulating and important not only to the footbridge community, but also to designers working in many other fields of construction: Cultivate debate and Footbridges for Berlin.
