FIRST PLACE IN PUBLIC COMPETITION
SELECTED WORK 9TH ROSA BARBA LANDSCAPE INTERNATIONAL AWARDS
The bridge, built for vehicles over the Meridiana Avenue in the eighties, is transformed into a pedestrian bridge. The project is about converting it into a new place, a free space that people from the Old and New Trinity neighborhoods can share. The history of this bridge begins again; how it will be used will show us what this public space can do to improve the life quality in a neighborhood.
The materials used in the design are vines, iron, concrete and light. The bridge incorporates solar energy collection used for lighting at night and the new photocatalytic concrete that reduces pollution and cleans the air of CO2. Ultimately it is proposed that the bridge will become a new gardened civic space equipped with contemporary technology to improve living conditions of the surroundings and minimize (or cancel) consumption, emissions and maintenance costs.
