The famous Spanish architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava was commissioned by Haarlemmermeer municipality to design this trio of bridges across the Hoofdvaart watercourse. Intended as landmarks, the three cable-stayed bridges - Luit (lute), Citer (zither) and Harp - have single towers each with a different gradient. Luit, a cable-stayed roundabout bridge, is located in Hoofddorp near Toolenburg-Zuid, an overspill area to be designed by Steven Holl and MVRDV. Citer is part of a new road to the south (Nieuwe Bennebroekerweg) and Harp lies north of Nieuw-Vennep.
