Ponte della Pace, by Michele De Lucchi - Tbilisi, Georgia A bridge is a symbolic architecture, a cohesion of opposite points: in this case between different, separate social circumstances and territorial conformations which celebrate their union. This bridge crosses the river Mtkvari in Tbilisi, connecting the older district of Bericoni to that of Rikhe, which has been the subject of a recent development plan on an international scale. The roof seems a single membrane created by a framework of steel tubes and triangular glass units. Its shell structure is a recognisable icon of the city. The cross arches are all generated by the same parabola, inspired by standardisation and scale economy. The longitudinal profile on the other hand, which identifies the bridge, is also the result of the most effectively balanced forces. Created at the centre of the bridge is a “piazza”, an ideal social and cultural meetingplace, from which the population and tourists can enjoy splendid views of Tbilisi. Thus from the Presidential Palace, the Cathedral or the suburbs extending along the valley, the bridge stands out as a landmark for the whole city.(o)
