The Festina Lente Bridge will throw you for a loop
Every piece of infrastructure in a city is an opportunity to express creatively how much that city cares about people–be it a bus stop, a building, a sewer grate or a bridge.

The Festina Lente Bridge is located over the Miljacka river in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was designed by three, then product design students at the Academy of Fine Arts; Adnan Alagic, Bojan Kanlic and Amila Hrustic

While it’s not remarkable that students designed such a compelling bridge, it is remarkable that their design was actually built. In my experience, student projects are often so far removed from the realities of actual constructibility and logic that they don’t get off the page they were drawn on. Perhaps it’s that innocence that was the strength of this project.

The Festina Lente Bridge which is Latin for, “make haste slowly”, is a pedestrian bridge that curls up in the middle and offers those crossing the river a moment of respite and reflection. The curled portion of the bridge also provides sitting in the form of long wooden logs, which are perfect for looking at the length of the river and surely create a picturesque moment for visitors to the city.

The bridge is constructed of steel and trimmed with aluminum, with glass at its side to separate the people from the river. At night, bridge is intriguing because of the subtle LED lights. Designed in such a way that it mimics a gateway, the Festina Lente Bridge is a small intervention, one that invites people to experience the notion that there are more valuable things to do than just getting from A to B.
