Il ponte di Seonyudo — the footbrigde of peace Il ponte della pace di Seoul (realizzato nel 2002) collega la megalopoli con l’isola Sunyudo sul fiume Han. Rudy Ricciotti interpreta lo spazio di connessione affrontando le scelte della conservazione e della demolizione, definendo con l’arco in cemento un nuovo spazio che concilia la città con il fiume. SEONYUDO BRIDGE, Rudy Ricciotti #seonyudobridge @rudyricciotti #tempodacqua #thetimeofwater The Footbridge of Peace is a gift to the Republic of Korea from France and links Seoul with Seonyudo Island, which is being turned into a park and visitor attraction. The arch bridge has a constant depth of 1.3 m over a 110-m span and was built using a cementitious material called Ductal, that is reinforced with steel fibres and/or synthetic fibres. The bridge was constructed by VSL International and was erected as six precast segments. Rudy Ricciotti is a French architect born in 1952.
