Footbridge over the A-6 Highway in Torrelodones.

The structure is restrained in both abutments, and this mechanism allows to get a very dynamic and slender shape. 

The shape mimics the internal forces of the bridge obtaining a natural shape which creates a unique, singular object.

The use of restraining abutments serves to drastically reduce the efforts and deformations at midspan and increases the comfort against vibrations.
