Two districts with personality, and if they were connected by foot they both could get good profits one from the other. They are separated by the natural depression Bajada de Armendáriz, used as the logic way down to the beach for one of the most important city´s highways, increasing break up perception.

This bridge is also a garden, a plaza, a viewpoint, a sculpture, a terrace, a meeting-point, an element to shake the city. It is an opportunity to get a landscape regeneration of this big city void. Thanks to its unique shape and location this new object will be seen from many places, and at the same time you could watch everything from it.
