From the architect. The sinuous and segmented design of the bridge winds above the valley, along a distance of about 220 m. The central bay takes the perpendicularity to the line of the valley. The other two sections are inflected and oriented towards their anchoring points.

The connection between the two points is no longer the shortest distance between them. The tensioned geometry of its layout interferes with visual orientation and with the perception of dominating heights of “Serra da Estrela”, on one side, and with the vastness of Cova da Beira on the lower side.

A beautiful bridge, bad taste columns! why decorate the columns if the bridge is simple and elegant.
Could not you be quiet, you had to give it a personal touch!?

appreciated the use of materials and the way it doesn't overlay the panorama with his thin sign. Cool illumination effect too. Good job
