Pedestrian walkway in Vallparadís park

Josep Sotorres, Montserrat Batlle y Barto Busom. RGA Arquitectos y Manel Raventós y Albert Mas. Enginyeria Reventós S.L.

Description

The proposal must resolve the construction of a pedestrian walkway that bridges the two sides of one of the streams that constitute Vallparadís park; in one of its ends, the new walkway facilitates access to the impressive three-church complex that forms the headquarters of the old Egara bishopric. The need to avoid competing with this complex of monuments or with the trees of the park made it advisable to use a highly schematic, lightweight structural configuration; in this sense, the construction of a hanging bridge that unifies cable and platform appeared to be particularly suitable. The resolution of the handrails gives a certain air of intimacy to the access route to the monuments’ enclosure.
