The 3 footbridges are walkways. They continue the urban tissue and link the pier with the city. Besides linking two parts of the city it is the experience of the promenade, the discovering of new perspectives and views, the closeness to the water which guides the design of the bridges. The architectural ambition is to make them part of the urban landscape, integrating them naturally. Lightness and transparency are major issues. The bridges are opposing the dense urban tissue. They contrast the monumentality of the surrounding buildings by their freely adapted geometry. The bridges want to be part of the natural environment, inspired by the presence of water. Like insects they stretch out their members to reach the quay sides offering a multiple choice of crossing – fast and slow, for bicycles and disabled on flat ramps. The ramps are part of the crossing, part of the design.

In the centre the different connexion add to form a plaza over the water forming a privileged viewpoint.

Local oak wood as deck covering, the transparent railing made of a stainless steel cable net and the integrated lighting of the bridge create the specific atmosphere on the bridge. Structure is a main part of the form. It is clearly expressed, details are carefully designed and tell the way forces are led to the banks.
