Isoisänsilta footbridge

The 152m long footbridge opens a connection between the urban bank of new Kalasatama district, Mustikkamaa and Korkeasaari islands.
The concrete cantilever structure consists of two beams extending variably above and below the deck, in order to create sheltering walls.
The twisting structure provides the bridge with a powerful, sculptural figure.
