Tartubron - Vallastaden Urban Living Expo 2017 / by Kauppi & Kauppi

Vallastaden 2017 is an urban living expo held between September 2-24 in Linköping, Sweden.

The exhibition shows several new bridges, and one of them is Tartubron (The Tartu Bridge) by White Arkitekter and Johan Kauppi. Vallastaden presents the bridge: "The red bridge over Smedstadsbäcken has become a symbol of Vallastaden. The bridge is designed to provide an experience of a living room on the water; a feeling of being invited. With red wood panels and expanded metal lining, Tartu Bridge resembles a red exclamation mark located in the middle of the district."
