Design of a bridge on the Burgundy Channel (restaurant of 200 m2, and a public
walkway), replacing the old bridge, destroyed 20 years ago.
1) Analysis of how to construct a
bridge in the 19th century (steel beam connected in situ).
2) Weaving of the new bridge beam in wire material, like a cobweb.
3) Adapting the wire cage according to admissible public weight by meter square
(walk way and restaurant).
4) Production of façades which follow the flexibility of the structure.
