i fall in love with corten dated back to my first visit to spain in early 90′. it is a very commonly used material for public space there – from park to urban plaza to signage – almost everywhere. i was absolutely fascinated and can’t wait to find out “what is this material called?”

here are couple really unique pedestrian bridge projects from Alfa Polaris S.L.… ready to be inspired!

+ Can Gili Footbridge, Granollers, Spain

landing detail. i like how they transit the minor elevation change with some little steps. it created nice shadow lines as well.

this one is amazing… the most attractive part is the historical portion mixed with rusty ” new” corten bridge… really awesome!
