Forces of Attraction: A Landmark for Montevideo

One of the main criteria set by Uruguay's Ministry for Public Works and Transportation for the design of a new road bridge was creating a landmark that would provide an impressive gateway for visitors arriving at Montevideo from the airport. The authorities requested an original design, with highly expressive visual image that would not only appeal to visitors but would be capable of stimulating the rehabilitation and improvement of the semi-urban surroundings. Satisfying the functional and monumental requirements of the client led to design of a distinctive cable stayed bridge.
