GARDEN BRIDGE

rue aux dames, Paris.

This project is a pedestrian bridge crossing the tracks of the Saint-Lazare train station in Paris.

 

The urban fabric is very dense there. The neighborhood lacks green spaces. The structure of the bridge is deliberately oversized to accommodate large earthen bins.

 

Thus, the footbridge becomes a small garden suspended above the train tracks in the continuity of the street named rue des dames, itself turned into a pedestrian area.
