Mare a Mare Footbridges: Transparent Structure

The project consists of building six footbridges across the scrub, the streams and the rivers. On the scale of the large landscape, the installation of a light, transparent structure aims to disappear into the sandstone of these wild and little frequented natural spaces.

Indeed, they are visible to the visitors in their entirety only within a radius of less than 30 meters. To respond to the landscape, the project is made in the finest possible Corten steel structure (rust tint) to make the structure non-existent in a near and far landscape and to blend the footbridges with the vegetation.

The purpose of the steel is to oxidize with time and weather so that the colors merge with nature and revoke an already-there object.
