Progettazione del Ponte Torretta a Bellinzona
Initially rebuilt in 1800 and later destroyed once more, Ponte Torretta was a bridge that departed from the so-called Torretta, a medieval building situated in the middle of one of the city’s parks. The canton decided to call a tender for the construction of a bridge linking the two banks of River Ticino, as part of a project designed to adjust the cantonal road network and complete soft mobility connections. In this context, we decided to participate to the tender proposing a design project for the construction of the new pedestrian and cycle walkway. The more prominent characteristics of our project were the length of 200 meters and the choice of materials. The whole project will carried out using metal carpentry and flat band cast on a holorip type structural sheet metal.
The bridge will be supported by reinforced concrete pillars and the foundations will be based on underground piles.
