Prince of Asturias Bridge

DESCRIPCION


Salamanca is one of the oldest universities of the Medieval Europe, and the oldest of Spain. Its historical and artistic wealth, which includes a magnificent roman bridge, is an UNESCO World Heritage Site, made this commission a delicate mission, which was fulfilled in a respectful and adequate way.
Our project, chosen by the Junta de Castilla y León in a designing and construction competition, proposed a multispan continuous typology over the Tormes River, with very pure forms, which used huge precast elements for the creation of the large lateral cantilevers of the transversal section.
The "Príncipe de Asturias" bridge, which name was given by the local authorities, is 190 meters long, giving access to the city from the south riverbank though the crowded "Paseo de Canalejas" St..
 
The platform, 20m width, is composed by a central box girder made on site, with two lateral cantilevers materialized with precast elements. Each one of them includes a careful-designed skylight, equipped with a projector for illuminating the river water and the deck soffit with a diffused and flickering softness at night.
The piles, which were also illuminated, are provided with canoe-shape starlings.
