Description


Gran Canaria, Spain, 2001

The footbridge spans a bypass which connects two densely populated quarters; the historical town of Las Palmas and a newer suburb. The bridge design integrates infrastructure, landscape and recreational facilities. Spanning 93 meters, the bridge incorporates existing pedestrian and cyclist lanes on three levels. The complex structure is entwined at places where facilities are incorporated. The program entails a restaurant, bars, sport facilities and a community center. The exterior of the structure is cladded with perforated metal sheets, the interior features wood for the ‘slow’ lanes and a combination of concrete and perforated steel for the ‘fast lanes’.
