BILBAO -- Santiago Calatrava's "Puente del Campo Volantin" or "Zubizuri" is the most graceful footbridge I have ever seen. Its curving glass deck gives pedestrians an unimpeded view of the river below. It's a short walk along the river from the Guggenheim Bilbao.
"As in many other designs by Santiago Calatrava, an apparent disequilibrium or rather a sense of frozen movement is heightened by the lightness of the structure."
