The Sarajevo Bridge in Barcelona is the northernmost piece of infrastructure to span the Avinguda Meridiana, a highway that brings southbound traffic into the Catalonia capital. The elevated bridge’s conspicuous location motivated the city council to transform the structure into an eco-friendly green threshold for Barcelona. The renovated bridge will improve air quality and serve as a pedestrian-friendly meeting point between the two Trinitat neighborhoods.
The Sarajevo Bridge will soon receive a major green facelift complete with smog-eating concrete, vegetated green walls, and solar-powered glow-in-the-dark paving and LEDs. Designed by Spanish architecture studio BCQ, the infrastructural upgrade is part of the Barcelona City Council’s plan to transform the bridge into an eye-catching new gateway into the city. The energy self-sufficient bridge will double as an urban plaza with new seating and shade elements.
