The architects collaborated with engineering firm WSP Finland to design this tram, cyclist and pedestrian bridge, the name of which translates to Crown Bridges in Finnish. The €259 million project will cross Helsinki’s Kruunuvuorensilta bay and connect the new Kruunuvuorenranta housing development to the city center.

Tensioned cable stays will support the upper part of the structure featuring an elevated walkwayand tram tracks. The central, 442-feet-tall pylon has a diamond-like shape that references the crown. The project is expected to break ground in late 2018 and become open to the public in 2025.
