Bridge Cinema

The Linz Bridge Cinema, together with the new harbor development and the old town, define a new cultural axis. The connecting feature of the bridge is now perceived on a new level. Even though it doesn’t link physical spaces anymore, the bridge still acts as a bond between old and new values, between the urban and the wild, art and nature. Although inverted, the original image of its dominant structure can be seen as a reflection in the Danube or in the water basins created underneath the bridge.

The bridge is being reused as a multifunctional ensemble. While the main function is that of an Outdoor Cinema, also bringing together a small amphitheater, an interactive mini-cinema, a “history-wall” and a waterfront coffee-house, symbolically named “Under the Bridge”. Aside these functions, the rooftop defines itself as an observation deck, as well as natural space, a park where everyone can relax and enjoy the views, prone to draw in activity seekers during winter (ski, sledding).

The 3 central segments are being reused in a different manner to create a protective space. While the visual integrity of the Old Bridge is maintained on the outside, the whole structure is being reinforced and suspended over a concrete “box”-the cinema box and screen, creating a floating effect for the passer-by. The trusses that support the pedestrian walkway are being reused in two ways: as a cornice for the side facades, used for illuminating, and as a glass landing linked to the coffeehouse.
