WINNER OF THE PROJECT FOR A FOOTBRIDGE OVER THE LOIRE IN BLOIS

The project designed by our team Marc Mimram Architecture Ingénierie, Greisch, Seti and Phytolab was chosen as the winner of the competition for the construction of the footbridge over the Loire and the extension of the Viaduc des Noëls in Blois.

The 380 meters long by minimum 4 meters wide new footbridge and the extension of the Viaduc des Noëls should welcome their first users in about four years.

The footbridge constitutes a succession of sequences which organize a promenade over the Loire.
The structure is carried as a superstructure above the deck and in a dual way as an infrastructure under the deck. Thus, the long curve in plan of the footbridge corresponds to a gentle curve in elevation which allows the views of the river to open asymmetrically, directing them towards the city.
In the curves of this structure will be added two large belvederes which will offer places of contemplation on the river and the city.
We have placed sustainable development at the heart of our project approach, by developing an internal approach on the subject, notably integrating the carbon footprint associated with structural and material choices.

BASTION-MUDAM FOOTBRIDGE IN LUXEMBOURG

La conférence de presse pour la présentation du projet de Passerelle Piétonne et Cyclable entre l’Avenue J.F. Kennedy et le Parc des Trois Glands a eu lieu le 3 février dernier, en présence de Madame la ministre de la Culture, Sam Tanson, de Monsieur le ministre de la Mobilité et des Travaux publics, François Bausch, de Suzanne Cotter, Directrice du MUDAM, de l’artiste Monika Sosnowska, du Maître d’Ouvrage, le Fonds Kirchberg et de Tatiana Fabeck et Marc Mimram.

La passerelle prendra soin d’épargner les arbres du Parc des Trois Glands et constituera une promenade à travers les frondaisons.
La prouesse est ici non pas dans la portée ou l’expression technologique mais dans le respect des conditions du site tant par le tracé que par la méthode de construction.
En effet, pas un arbre n’est touché par la mise en place de la passerelle, la disposition des appuis assure un impact minimal au sol, la structure exprime l’économie de matière dans sa mise en œuvre et l’acier inoxydable qui la façonne ne nécessite aucun entretien dans le temps.
