Martutene Footbridge

The design approach of the Bicontentio Sinus Footbridge in Martutene (San Sebastián) begins with an initial assessment of the site that will receive the future bridge. The existing topography determines the support conditions, and the resulting bending moment diagram of the structure inspires the final shape of the bridge.

To achieve a slenderer appearance, the cross-sections along the length of the footbridge are very variable.

The structure consists of three spans: a large one of 62.6m and two small side spans of 2.8m. Combined with two small overhangs on either side, the total length is 71.1m.
