The Swiss structural engineer Jürg Conzett is famous for his unusual bridges. In Austria he participated in the planning of the Mursteg, which was built in 1993 to mark the Styrian regional ‘Holzzeit’ exhibition. Among the projects he is currently working on is the Viamala in Graubünden in the legendary Viamala gorge in Graubünden, Switzerland.
At the Az W Jürg Conzett is talking about the interplay between technical and architectural considerations when designing bridges. His talk also focuses on the treatment of existing bridges, such as railway bridges built around 1900.
