Over the generations, bridge building in Switzerland has produced a whole series of masterpieces. The concrete bridges created by Robert Maillart have become places of pilgrimage for engineers and architects alike, and for some years now, Jürg Conzett has pursued the same goal in his own individual and varied way. Conzett does not rely on one type of construction or material. He likes to experiment, though not just for the sake of doing something new. Structurally and through the design, and using the appropriate materials, he seeks to bring out the qualities of a particular location. Conzett builds a lift bridge here, a stone-arch bridge there, a timber trussed-frame road bridge in one place, and somewhere else a space-frame pedestrian bridge trussed on the underside.
