Pedestrian bridge in Lisbon, one of the 10 best in the world


Architectural reference site praised the dynamism of the orange bridge found in Telheiras.

The orange bridge that connects Telheiras to the Torres de Lisboa was voted one of the 10 best in the world by the website Designboom, a website on art, architecture and design that is already a reference in these areas.


According to the website, the fact that the bridge is positioned on a busy highway with no columns on the road and promotes physical exercise, with ramps, stairs and spaces for bicycles, are advantages that differentiate it.


The use of side beams instead of columns in the center is also highlighted by the architecture website. The bridge is a project by Maximina Almeida + Telmo Cruz and was inaugurated in 14th February 2015.


Designboom refers to the bridge as a dynamic structure that promotes a healthy lifestyle.


In addition to the Portuguese bridge are also at the top:

The Cirkelbroen Bridge in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The iron bridge that was created using 3D printing technology. This bridge is placed in the center of Amsterdam, Holland.
The Danjiang Bridge in Taiwan.
The “Bat” Bridge, in Monster, Holland, which was built to be a bat shelter.
The Nomanslanding Dome Bridge, a movable bridge built for the Ruhrtriennale Festival in Germany. The sphere in the middle of the bridge can be separated into two, making it a point to watch the water or cross.
The Nine Elms Bridge to Pimlico, which is still a project, will be the first bridge without cars, only for pedestrians and cyclists, in London, England.
The Glass Bridge in Shiniuzhai National Park, China. that allows to pass over the space between two precipices.
The Butterfly Bridge in Denmark. The name of the bridge is explained by the shape it takes when the two wings rise together or one at a time.
And the bridge of the project of the company Niall Mclaughlin Architects, in the competition for the construction of a passage on the coast of Cornwall, in the United Kingdom, next to Tintagel Castle, opened on august 2019.

This is based on an e-mail I received a few years back, so I had to search for the nowadays bridges! Do not know the original author, but I thank him/her/it for the amazing information!

He had to undergo an operation due to cancer that he suffered in 1985 and was forced to abandon his dreams entrepreneurs and became an independent cartoonist and satirical illustrator. These are some of his best work.

After finishing reading the book I had to rewatch this amazing film!

I have to say this, once more I think this was the movie who should have taken the Oscar for “Best Picture”, not only “ Best Adapted Screenplay ”… 

Nonetheless, the adaption it’s really phenomenal, and I really loved the book too…

A piece of art with a beautiful love story! Sigh!
