This bridge is a replacement of the Ponte da Verrazzano in Florence Italy.
It creates a continuity of the park on both city sides and becomes a meeting place for cultural and social events with its public spaces- round theatre for contemporary dancing, exhibition spaces, recreation and coffee shops, student workshops, children’s library and Photography gallery.

It becomes a city in itself, right in front of the Old bridge(Ponte Vecchio) as a mixed use Urban structure of the middle ages, the City bridge becomes an innovative expression, an echo of the historical bridge. A Monument of dynamics, life on top of the steaming water of the Arno River. it simulates the flexibility of the material created by the water.
