Bridge Pavilion, Zaragoza, Spain

The Bridge Pavilion is a building that was constructed for the Expo 2008 in Zaragoza (Spain) as one of its main landmarks. It is an innovative 270-metre-long covered bridge that imitates a gladiola over the river Ebro, connecting the neighbourhood of La Almozara with the exposition site, and thus becoming its main entrance. The new bridge is, at the same time, a multi-level exhibition area.

It is made up of fibre glass reinforced concrete. The outer skin of the building is covered with 29,000 triangles of fibreC in different shades of grey.

Architect : Zaha Hadid
