Kienlesbergbrücke highlighted in German built environment report

24 June 2020

Knight Architects is extremely proud to be part of the Baukultur Report 2020/2021: Public Spaces. Broadcast live from the foundation's HQ in Potsdam earlier today, the eagerly anticipated and federally-significant report highlights the practice's Kienlesbergbrücke in Ulm as an exemplar of high-quality public realm infrastructure.

The report stresses the bridge’s function as an engineering structure as well as a piece of landmark architecture; and as a new route and place to meet and linger over a previously inaccessible area.

The Federal Foundation of Baukultur's biennial report examines conditions and challenges for lively and diverse public spaces, champions the interests of high-quality and thoughtful design and construction and pursues the goal of anchoring the outward appearance and condition of the built environment as a topic of public interest. The report, which makes recommendations that influence future policies and legislation, is being presented exclusively to the federal governments before being made available to the public.
