    Description

    The sea and the river : duel and transcendence.
    Bordeaux is maritime,
    The bridge is its signal
    Immanent identity

    Yann Kersalé

    Colored light-substances created specifically for the location are diffused on the height of the bridge piers. The latter vary – arrays of blues, turquoise and greens – according to the height of the tide in the Gironde estuary.

    The bridge becomes a signal on the Garonne and at the scale of the territory.
