Marc Mimram / Passerelle Solferino Paris / Solferino Bridge Paris : Solferino Bridge, Paris
For several years, the engineer and architect Marc Mimram has been making a name for himself with his elegant and technically sophisticated constructions, but it was with his double arch steel bridge SolfA(c)rino which spans the Seine between the Tuileries and the Gare d'Orsay that he recently vaulted into international prominence. He was awarded the renowned French architecture prize Equerre d'argent for this accomplishment. A distinctive feature of the bridge is the minimal use of materials, allowing the complex design to be realised with an uncharacteristic lightness and elegance. This book traces the entire construction process of the bridge, from the initial designs to the completed structure. Enhanced by a wealth of photographs and plans, this publication offers an in-depth analysis of this impressive bridge.
