Pasarela del Postiguet – Alicante

“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 colours that change with each season, clean profiles reinforce the gateway.

    Could have been better…for a nice opportunity~
    Why there's such a thick and high balustrade?

    correctly written:
    passarel·la del postiguet
    alicant

    great form + finish, but i'm dubious about the durability of the glass; unfortunately glass doesn't remain transparent in urban or coastal environments. it'll quickly become painted, graffitied, tagged, scratched and clouded by salt spray.

    can't sit , can't lean comfortably…

    And form has won it again!

    Can anyone find something good in it!!!!
    It really elegant, thin and light, with this nice views on the Med sea.
    Fore me its impressing. Of course I’m not architect, but I have some idea of architecture and I think you all, don’t need to be so critic. Go and see it, sit on the beach after travelling from city to the sand, wait 10 years for its “degradation” and then criticize.
