Malmö Live - Bridge and Urban Space

Most people know the feeling of wanting to stop in the middle of the bridge when you "are standing on the water", can observe the city and look along the canal. It is this stay in the middle of the water which forms the basis of the new central bridge in Malmö – a bridge established in connection with the new Malmö Live Concert and Congress Centre. The bridge gathers the old center, with Malmo Live, with a direct and secure connection for pedestrians. The bridge respects the guidelines and requirements to the fairway, while the “floating "seating furniture" also materialize an urban space that invites you to take a break and connects the two sides of the canal.
