Design of the new bridge over the Lotsekanal (Zitadellenbrücke) over the inland port of Hamburg

7th Hans Grassl Award


To win the 7th Hans Grassl Award, in the winter of 2018/2019 the civil engineering master’s students of the Technische Universität Braunschweig specialising in steel construction were given approximately seven weeks to design the new pedestrian bridge over the Lotsekanal (Zitadellenbrücke) in Hamburg-Harburg. Structural, aesthetic, urban planning and economic considerations were to be taken into account.

At the end of January, the jury judged the work of the student teams.

First place went to Leon Bielenberg, Carolin Dickmann, Julian Engel, Johanna Hofer and Louis Schröder.

Aamer Aljazzar, Pauline Falkenrich, Paula Gwizdalla and Birte Sterner tied for second place with Laura Beutel, Anna Diekmann, Jonas Krampe, Arne Lordz and Mathias Worm.
