Zaragoza Bridge Pavilion-Zaha Hadid

PROGRAM:
Interactive exhibition area focusing on water sustainability, integrating a pedestrian bridge to perform as gateway for the Zaragoza Expo 2008.

CLIENT:
Expoagua Zaragoza 2008

SIZE:
Total Surface 6415m²
Exhibition Surface 3915m²
Pedestrian Bridge 2500m²

CONCEPT:
The Bridge Pavilion is organized around 4 main sections, or “pods” that perform both as structural elements and as spatial enclosures. Floors inside them are located at the Expo principal levels: +201.5 (the soffit of the bridge is at +200 m, flood protection minimum level), +203 m and +206, +207.5 for the upper level. The development of our design for the bridge pavilion stems from the examination of the potential of a diamond-shaped section.
