We decided to create a window, a large glass curtain over the barranquilla landscape, a unique piece of landscape art.

We propose a monument to serve the city and its inhabitants, a work with which people can interact directly. For this reason, we conceive the monument as a piece of public infrastructure (bridge + park) at the service of the community.

This bridge will positively transform the place, making it friendly for the ordinary citizen, facilitating pedestrian connections in the area and converting a residual space into a public space for the Barranquilleros.

From residual space to oasis for people, the rotunda will become a large park and will be a seed to humanize the place and improve the quality of life in the area through the creation of public space.
