Dom Luiz I Bridge – Map

O mapa da Ponte Dom Luiz I surge do confronto entre a paisagem a de dois pontos de observação opostos. As vistas Nascente e Poente existem simultaneamente na mesma composição, criando entre elas um espaço vazio que desenha o tabuleiro da ponte. O corredor entre as duas vistas transporta o mapa para uma abordagem tridimensional, convidando as pessoas a atravessar a ponte.

The map of the Dom Luiz I Bridge arises from the confrontation between the landscape drawing from two opposing observation points. The East and West views exist simultaneously in the same composition, creating between them an empty space that draws the deck of the bridge. The corridor between the two views brings the map to a three-dimensional approach, inviting people to cross the bridge.

About zemiguelcardoso

I am passionate about good food and good wines. I am also obsessed with drawing. On this site you will find examples of the most recent works, always somehow related to drawing. Most studies relate to topics such as urban landscape, city guides, maps and the human figure. There are also some examples of other types of illustration dedicated to the communication of events or instruction manuals that come from my designer activity. I am available for design works, drawing and illustration at freelancer regime.
