Liaison between banks - Gateway Leopold Sedar Senghor

Small bridge for pedestrians, it is a gateway .
No How to write a novel?
And why not? A link between two banks , probably not so dangerous! And even then ...
In Paris, they crossed the Seine and the Canal Saint Martin ... If you unearth other, you tell me!

Season 3: Gateway Leopold Sedar Senghor
It arched its back over the river,
by far, is a curve perforated and smooth playing with light and passes the eye.
undeniably unique architecture and pure!
"symmetry structures, asymmetries of course " it writes its architect-engineer, Marc Mimram ...! Let's see.

Perhaps you have known of Solferino bridge . It has changed names since October 2006 ...
But not so fast!
From 1861 and for a century, the cast iron bridge was inaugurated by Napoleon III allowed the passage of vehicles between the Quai Anatole France and the Quai des Tuileries, the Pont de Solferino .

Arch bridge built by engineers at the Pont des Invalides (masonry bridge with four arches arc - 1854-1856),
Paul Martin of The Galisserie and Jules Savarin is victory in June 1859 Battle of Solferino, which gives its name to the book.
construction having ignored the frequent passage of barges, it was damaged, destroyed and replaced in 1961 by a steel footbridge, in turn demolished in 1992.
is Marc Mimram who won the contest started that year and built the current bridge, opened in 1999.
"In each of its components the project gives its static characteristics read to form the shape of the work beyond the logic of the flow of forces. There are no formal dartifice here but the staging of the laws of gravity to the service route dun urban. "

Gateway crosses the Seine in one piece with a single arch, which relies very tense on both sides down to the docks . Two powerful arcs arise on each bank and support a series of double struts in the shape of "V" which is shortened to the center.

The deck and sides of bays complete the symmetry, the high platforms. ... gently curved line divides the two ends, an intermediate support located along the road embankment on the left bank and the wall right bank of the dock.

900 tons of steel (six elements of 150 tons produced by the Eiffel), 140m long and 106m range, width 11 to 15m , slab (and stairs) exotic wood like Ebony Doussié green and finely grooved.

At least two courses are open to walkers: one on the main deck connected to the high platforms ,
the other in the heart of the work from the docks low.
The two side passages slightly curved settled as two balconies on the size of the river, gazebo on the town and the Parisian landscape.
The central part of the bridge is the meeting place of multiple pathways . Throughout this aisle, sinstallent benches, railings and integrated lighting.

prompted benches, "O time, suspend thy flight! "... Turning suspend your steps, to let the river run under your feet, your eyes play on the horizon and your soul soak latmosphère of the place.

To join the Musée d'Orsay (Paris 7th district) the Jardin des Tuileries (Paris 4th district ), according to Marc Mimram, "... in the urban context present, the course is asymmetrical in nature. Indeed, the right bank expressway makes the connection at the high platform difficult track on the left bank on bank makes the link at the bottom dock dangerous:
the easiest route will therefore be through the underpass from the Tuileries quay to the high side Orsay. " Or vice versa ... Orsay high platform next to the underpass of the Tuileries.

Du Musée d'Orsay ,
the eve of the exhibition of 1900, the Company of Railways Orleans plans to build instead of the Palace of Orsay a more central terminus station. The constraints of the site - elegant neighborhood near the palace Louvre and the Legion of Honor - imposed a challenge to competitors: integrate the station into an elegant urban setting. Victor Laloux (1850-1937) was chosen in 1898. The station and hotel, built in two years, were inaugurated for the Universal Exhibition, July 14, 1900 . Outside, Laloux masked metal structures of the station by a stone façade eclectic style. Inside, the modern techniques.

The official decision to build the Orsay Museum was taken in Council Interdepartmental October 20, 1977 at the initiative President Valery Giscard d'Estaing. In 1978, the building was declared a historical monument and the public institution of the Orsay Museum was established to oversee the construction and implementation of the museum. On 1 December 1986, the President of the Republic, François Mitterrand, inaugurated the new museum opened its doors on 9 December.
The transformation of the station into a museum was the work of the architects of the group ACT-Architecture, MM. Bardon, Colboc and Philippon. Their project, selected from among six proposals in 1979, was to respect the architecture of Victor Laloux all reinterpreting it according to his new vocation. It allowed to showcase the great nave, using it as the main axis of the route, and transform the main entrance canopy.

the Tuileries Gardens,
C ' is now a public garden, the largest and oldest garden in the French Capital was once one of the Tuileries Palace, former residence royal and imperial, now disappeared.

The Tuileries Garden is classified as historical monuments since 1914, included in a designated site and included in the protection of World Heritage by UNESCO on the banks of the Seine.
We owe it to Andre Le Notre who designed it, on demand, in 1664, Colbert. It has now, in broad outline, then kept his appearance.
The terrace of the waterfront made by Le Nôtre was amended in lax and interrupted the Solferino bridge at its completion in 1859.
