Footbridge ValmyBack to Projects list
- Passage Valmy, 92000 Nanterre, France
- EPA Seine Arche
The 88-meter long footbridge is part of a promenade between La Defense and Nanterre. Its layout responds to the geometry of the Société Générale office building. The structure is composed by supporting elements in the form of “vertebras”. The “backbone” of the structure consists of a box girder made of welded steel sheets. The “vertebras” are linked with steel rods forming a cable-stayed structure for the vertical loads. Three cables following the outside edge of the circle situated under the deck level respond to torsion forces.
