during this year’s sculpture by the sea festival in aarhus, denmark, danish practice gjøde & povlsgaard arkitekter have added ‘the infinite bridge’ to the picturesque coastal landscape. the circular structure spans from the sandy shore out to sea, elevated just above the surface of the water — depending on the tide.

beginning at the coast, visitors follow the ring-shaped formation from the beach to the water’s depths, making their way around the vast and continuous construction. a 60-meter diameter separates spectators on the seaside from the participating pedestrians situated at the furthest point from the coast. as if walking on water, those traversing the circumference of ‘the infinite bridge’ encounter the surrounding landscape from a variety of angles and orientations. the unparalleled vantage point, height and depth above the water offer a panoramic view otherwise unable to be experienced and enjoyed.
