Zaha Hadid designed the Zaragoza Bridge Pavilion for her client, Expoagua Zaragoza 2008. The pavilion is built to hold the Water and Sustainable Development Expo in Zaragoza or known as Zaragoza Expo 2008. It has 3915 m2 of surface and 2500 m2 of Pedestrian Bridge.
The Zaragoza Bridge Pavilion is organized around 4 main objects, or “pods” that perform both as structural elements and as spatial enclosures. The Bridge Pavilion design stems from the detailed examination and research into the potential of a diamond shaped section – which offers both structural and programming properties. As in the case of space-frame structures, a diamond section represents a rational way if distributing forces along a surface.
