Photographer's Note

I have shown already four beautiful and very interesting bridges I have seen in Spain, but now the most unique, probably the only one like this in the world.
This is Zaragoza’s iconic Bridge Pavilion (Pabellón Puente), designed by Zaha Hadid for Expo 2008. he 270-metre bridge was a major landmark of Expo 2008 and its main entrance, connecting the Expo site to the neighbourhood of La Almozara across the River Ebro. The design of the bridge was inspired by gladioli and the river it crosses, with its enclosed structure offering visitors an escape from Zaragoza’s summer heat. Often cited as one of Hadid’s best works, and the first bridge she completed, one of its remarkable features is that it merges two distinct functions, serving as a bridge and as an exhibition space. It is made of glass fibre reinforced concrete, and was designed with a variety of openings in its skin in order to convey and direct air to provide ventilation.During the Expo, which was organised under the theme of water and sustainable development, the Bridge Pavilion hosted an exhibition entitled ‘Water – a unique resource’, featuring 3,100m2 of exhibition space over two walkways.
I hope to make beautiful shots inside but unfortunately this exceptional construction is closed, as I read in Google, it was open only for a few months last year.

I doubt that anyone will look at Workshops, but here they are:
