THE NEW "PONTE DEI CONGRESSI" IN ROME

En este articulo se hace una breve descripcion del proyecto ganador del concurso que el Ayuntamiento de Roma lanzo en 1.999 para construir un nuevo puente sobre el rio Tiber y al que se presentaron 52 equipos de toda Europa. La propuesta aqui descrita se refiere a un gran arco elevado atirantado por el propio tablero, cuya concepcion ha estado presidida por el deseo de integrarlo al maximo en su entorno paisajistico y urbano. El diseno de su seccion transversal ha respondido al deseo del municipio romano de incluir paseos peatonales y ciclistas as! como zonas del puente donde pudieran instalarse en el verano manifestaciones culturales.

Resumen en ingles: This article provides a brief description of the winning project in the design competition put out by the Rome City Council in 1 999 for the construction of a new bridge over the River Tiber. The project, which was selected from tenders from 52 teams from all over Europe, is for a large bowstring arch bridge which is braced by its own deck. The bridge design was largely governed by the need to integrate it as far as possible with its surrounding natural and urban environment. The design of the cross-section responds to the Rome Council's desire to include pedestrian walkways and cycle paths as well as for the need to set aside certain areas on the bridge which could be used for cultural exhibitions during the summer months.
