Montpellier, France
Year:
2014

The project of Bridge of the Republic in Montpellier, on behalf of the SERM, includes the construction of the bridge over the Lez and the facilities connecting to it. Implementation and architectural style were shown through the choice of the structure, materials and constructive methodologies, and guided by environmental and socio-economical aspects. Hydraulic transparency, slender piers and thin deck, made with high sustainable but competitive material, are the key concepts of this project.
For the project, “Ultra-High-Performance Fiber Reinforced Concrete” is used twice pre-stressed vertically and longitudinally as a constructive material, for the whole deck and piers, which represents innovation in the field of bridge construction.
Taking into consideration the repetitive and very dangerous floods of the river, the whole structure was finished within Refusal of vulgarity, belief in the intelligence and morality of technology of twenty-first century, wrote this very delicate bridge, week outside and powerful inside.
A centipede, a feature set on stilts, a thin plate on needles, a mineral light colored item announcing the dominant color of white concrete architecture of the neighborhood Jacques Coeur, all these attitudes are describing this crossing. Still believe that a proposed bridge can be contextual, unique, made in a wise technology, different from the technology of steel.
