Speirs + Major have been announced as part of the successful team to win the international competition in Copenhagen to create a new pedestrian bridge over the city’s Inner Harbor. The team, which includes bridge designers Flint & Neill and Studio Bednarski, triumphed over an outstanding field of nine other international bridge design groups. Scheduled for completion in 2012, the bridge will be a vital link in the city and become a new focal point in the historic Inner Harbour area.

The structural design has been nicknamed the Kissing Bridge because of how the two moving halves of the structure retract and extend longitudinally on support rails to join in the middle.
