Within its 2009 edition and the theme “It’s About Time”, EXD and Galp Energia Foundation are inviting architects and architecture firms to design a new infrastructure for the Portuguese capital.
The goal of the bridge is to facilitate access for cyclists and pedestrians in Lisbon, encouraging the use of bicycles in the city and establishing a legacy for the city and its inhabitants.
The competition is open to architects and architecture firms worldwide. The winner will be awarded €10,000 as well as the contract to build the bridge (construction scheduled for 2010). In addition, there will be two runner-up cash prizes and two honorable mentions. The winning work and jury shortlist will be shown at the Lounging Space during EXD’09, between 13 September (announcement of winner) and 8 November.
