Lausanne, 2020-

The Dorigny pedestrian bridge is an important link in the soft mobility network of the Lausanne-Morges agglomeration project. It allows the crossing of the A1 freeway, the UNIL bypass road and the light train tracks, thus linking the future "En Dorigny" district to the university campus and, on a larger scale, the center of Renens to the lake shore. The project takes the form of a generous collimated staircase which, in a clear gesture, crosses the 80 meters that separate the two sides of the infrastructures thanks to a single pile. Its black color and smooth appearance contrast with the elevator, which also plays a static role, but reads as an independent object.
