Argentina, Buenos Aires, La Puente de la Mujer

Puente de la Mujer

The Puente de la Mujer was designed by Santiago Calatrava and is a footbridge located in Puerto Madero, Buenos Aires (Argentina). The Cantilever spar cable-stayed type bridge is also a swing bridge with an asymmetrical arrangement. The single mast suspends a part of the bridge which is able to rotate 90 degrees (to let water traffic pass). The bridge was donated to the City of Buenos Aires by Alberto L. González in gratitude for 60 years of work in Argentine. After 13 years of construction, it was completed in late 2001.
