MAP Dom Luiz Bridge

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.

O mapa da Ponte Dom Luiz I surge do confronto entre a paisagem vista 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.
