13.059 | Footbridge Albi
On the outskirts of the Episcopal City of Albi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the new pedestrian and bicycle link along the railway viaduct will improve connectivity between the neighbourhoods of Castelviel and Pratgraussal. The structure consists of a triangular metal box section that widens to form viewing points. The slenderness, the clear, pastel-blue glossy underside and the filigree stainless steel railing all impart a feeling of intangibility and evanescence, interacting with the massiveness and rationality of the viaduct.
