when faced with designing a bridge in ljubljana, slovenia architect damjan bradač approached the challenge with nautical engineering in mind.

similar in many design-related issues, damjan bradač—with colleagues mark koritnik and maria coutinho—have conceived the structure so that it enables high-functionality, while remaining minimal in mass. this philosophy dictated the selection of carbon-fiber—a proven standard in racing and vessel design— as well as the minimal arching form. smart, light, and elegant, the ‘carbon-fiber bridge’ blends in, rather than obscure the surroundings of its planned location.
