In this competition entry for the new bridge and car park design for the town of Moena in Trentino our objective was to minimise the impact on wildlife and biodiversity. We achieved that by leaving the river banks untouched and, against the brief, placing the car park underground in an urban area. Our strategic move allowed our design proposal to minimise the impact on the environment both from visual and ecological points of view.

The second element of innovation was our choice to place the pedestrian path underneath the vehicular bridge. This created a safe, weather proof and easily maintainable public walkway where larger areas were left for pedestrians and tourists to enjoy the breath-taking landscape around the new structure.
