Technical Tour #2 – Linzer Suspension Bridge with WITH IABSE Austria
Bridge + Ars Electronica
Friday, September 29th, 2023 • 09.00 – 17.00
Meeting Point: Peter Jordan Strasse 82, 1190 Wien

Suspension Bridge in Linz
The 4th bridge across the Danube in Linz is part of Austria‘s A 26 highway development. It‘s a four lane western bypass for Linz, crossing a busy waterway, rail tracks, and two federal highways. The steep rock slopes of the Danube valley allow direct anchoring of supporting cables, eliminating the need for pylons. The bridge‘s superstructure is a composite steel construction with a central steel box girder and haunched steel crossbeams spaced at hangers‘ intervals. The suspension cable bundles consist of 12 parallel, fully locked spiral cables with a 95mm diameter. The hangers are also spiral ropes connected to the suspension ropes with castings as rope clamps. The design takes advantage of the unique circumstances, creating a slender and transparent construction that harmonizes with the ecologically sensitive planning area and the beautiful landscape of the Danube valley.

Ars Electronica
The Ars Electronica Center (AEC), also referred to as the „Museum of the Future,“ opened in 1996 and has set itself the goal of making the technologies of future generations tangible in the present. In doing so, different directions of art, science and technology are addressed and interwoven. The building was completely rebuilt for the Capital of Culture 2009 and since then has over 3000 m² of exhibition space. The exhibitions revolve around the question of how humans interact with their increasingly digitalized environment and offer different perspectives on this. In Deep Space 8K, the AEC offers a unique virtual world in the form of large-scale wall and floor projections, laser tracking, and 3-D animations. The image worlds, e.g. from the fields of medicine, geology, and astronomy, are projected in 8K resolution. The AEC also offers various guided tours and workshops, as well as programs for schools.
