Caught in the Loop

In a world full of overcrowded cities with busy commuters, trying to get from A to B as quickly as possible has been the main aim for the clock watching workaholic. Three Bosnian product design students have tried to put a stop to this by creating a bridge in Sarajevo that encourages people to stop, sit down and take in the beautiful scenery.

Most transport links have been designed to be direct as possible, but not this bridge. It provides the pedestrian with a different experience which is less direct. A single curling form made from steel and aluminium incorporates a wooden bench to provide a contemplative haven for pedestrians and visitors to admire this picturesque city. Its unique form ( for a bridge ) looks just as eye catching at night illuminated with bright white LEDs.

Named Festina Lente, the bridge means 'to make haste slowly'. It’s a brave piece of modern architecture and engineering that sits elegantly alongside Sarajevo's historical buildings.
