Bogotá Arena Pedestrian Bridge
Arena Bogotá is currently being constructed on Calle 80, allowing the arena to serve as the destination spot for the Colombian capital to converge at a series of events, including: live music performances, business conventions, and sporting events. The mega-structure, which surely will become a must-see cultural and entertainment center in the region, occupies a plot of land that exceeds over 1,000,000 square feet, and ultimately will include construction on over 750,000 square feet as part of the Arena and other event-space.
Arena Bogotá will have a capacity of 24,000 spectators as part of a strategic design that caters to attendees, and with it is intentional focus on user experience, the new construction introduces a pedestrian bridge which ushers all users via an elevated walkway. Steering away from the typical pedestrian bridge, this design utilizes the aesthetic and materials from the new arena to provide users with a taste of what is to come.
The design for the envelope of the pedestrian bridge needs to captivate attendees as soon as they approach the parking lots via car. This design does just that, by ensuring that the thousands of users who will cross by foot experience what Arena Bogota is all about, and by serving as a live billboard to the thousands of cars that will pass under it on a daily basis.
