Bridge Pavilion for Zaragoza EXPO 2008

Wednesday 03 Aug 2005

Zaha Hadid has won the competition to design the main pavilion for the 2008 International Exposition in Zaragoza, Spain beating 14 competition finalists including Richard Rogers, Torres & Martínez Lapeña, and Rafael Moneo. Engineering will be by Ove Arup. The bridge will link the city to the expo site. The structure is comprised a series of interlocking truss elements known as pods. These optimise the structural system and allow for a natural differentiation of the pavilion interiors, where each pod corresponds to a specific exhibition space.
