“Las Norias” Footbridge

DESCRIPCION


This pedestrian bridge is the winning design of a competition organized by the Logroño City Council for solving the connection over the Ebro River of the neighborhoods of El Cubo and El Campillo next to Las Norias sports facilities.
The pedestrian bridge, a bowstring arch, jumps the river with a single 102 m span, looking for the maximum environmental respect. It has a variable width between 4.0 and 10.0 m and the arches rise 11.0 m over the deck, which is suspended from them by hanging cables separated 3.0 m. These hanging cables are not contained in a plane due to the inclination of the arches and the curved sides of the deck. They define a curved surface, an hyperboloid, creating a rich, dynamic and expressive space which evolves while pedestrians move along the structure, enhancing the crossing experience.
 We looked for a light design, with the slenderest structurally viable arches, trying to find a elegant and transparent view form far distances, respectful with the soft orography of the banks, the own Ebro river and the historical city center. We considered essential trying not to compete with the very visible towers to Santa Maria de la Redonda Cathedral for fulfills this last point. This subtitle far image, that seems to frame in a human eye the historical city center, becomes in a really three dimensional and expressive image while coming closer to the footbridge, which is nearly perceived as a butterfly shaking its wings for starting its fly over the Ebro River.
