Spain - Bilbao - Calatrava Bridge abstract 3

Puente del Campo Volantin, Bilbao by Calatrava

 

From Wikipedia : "The Zubizuri (Basque for "white bridge"), also called the Campo Volantin Bridge or Puente del Campo Volantin, is a tied arch footbridge across the Nervion River in Bilbao, Spain. Designed by architect Santiago Calatrava, the bridge links the Campo Volantin right bank and Uribitarte left bank of the river.

 

Opened in 1997, the bridge's unusual design consists of a curved walkway which is supported by steel suspension cables from an overhead arch. The structure of the bridge is painted white and the bridge deck consists of translucent glass bricks. Access ramps and stairways are located on both banks.

 

The Zubizuri offers pedestrians a convenient route from hotels to the nearby Bilbao Guggenheim Museum."
