Called Passerelle de la Paix, this new bridge crosses over the Rhone River and is located in Lyon, France offering a great place from where to admire the urban landscape while traversing either on foot or cycling.

The project was designed by the practice of Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes and it is a part of a city development to the north linking the Cite Internationale conference center and the St. Claire along with two parks called the Parc de la Tete d’or and the Parc of Saint Claire.

The bridge acts as a landmark that welcomes the visitors into the city since it can be seen from the high-speed rail track entering Lyon and it has two cantilevers built with an asymmetric tube structure join in the center so that it offers as much transparency as possible.

The bridge spans over a length of 157 meters with two walkways and a wooden deck made of oak wood to ensure anti-slipping features.
