The Bridge of lights …

The aesthetic urban sculpture of Paris

The Paserelle Simone de Beauvoir (click for a larger view) 304 metres long built by the architect Dietmar Feichtinger between 2004 and 2006 connects the Bercy Park to the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. The red lights installation of tubular glass tubes placed alongside the steel columns on the lower level of the footbridge are part of the artistic project of Paris and redesigning the banks of the Seine. The installation launched last June will be dismantled following the annual Nuit Blanche October 6. So should you be in Paris around this time be sure to see the bridge of lights and while you are there don’t miss the lovely Parc de Bercy where wines were once stored in the warehouses as well as the National Library – an impressive conceptual and symbolic abstraction in contemporary architecture.
