This competition for a pedestrian bridge over the Ayalon stream in its Ariel Sharon Park section, called for the design of a 220m long pedestrian, bicycle and light-weight electrical shuttles, with the aim of recycled materials usage and climatic approach.
The scheme suggests a steel framed structure of a tilted rectangular section, which makes possible for wider passes, static height needed, and space for linear systems.
The structure is covered by a light-weight translucent skin made of recycled wooden bars addressing the proper solar directions, and the pavement covered by recycled cobblestone.
