pasarela del postiguet – alicante

Competition: 1st prize

“a breeze envelope – contemporary architecture design” – The intervention follows the structure of the existing runway redefining its aesthetic language to give it dynamism and fluidity that transmit the innovative and contemporary character of the city of Alicante. Thus the union between the castle and the sea becomes a nice envelope curve that varies along its section of the gateway and accentuates the movement of the whole. A warm gesture of welcome to the Mediterranean.

The shell is made of a translucent material with programmable lighting system using LED technology that is able to vary its hue at night. The cast soft colors that change with each season, clean profiles reinforce the gateway. His reflection in the glass on the railing transmits a careful balance between lyricism and technology. Every night, Alicante bring to the sea a modern streak of light.
