Cluj city hall asked for solutions for a new pedestrian walkway over Somes. The company which has contracted the feasibility study asked us to find an attractive formula, with a flat arch structure with a single opening, based on a closed metal caisson, with a trapezoidal section. We arise by introducing additional pillars and an LED lighting strip. The arch leans on reinforced concrete abutments so that the configured pedestrian traffic on the shore and under the bridge would not be interrupted. We chose a white and supple presence, continuing the language from the stadium and multifunctional hall, visible nearby.

In partnership with DRUMEX SRL.
