✯ Puente de la Mujer

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Puente de la Mujer (Spanish for "Women's Bridge") is a rotating footbridge for Dock 3 of the Puerto Madero commercial district of Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is of the Cantilever spar cable-stayed bridge type and is also a swing bridge, but somewhat unusual in its asymmetrical arrangement. It has a single mast with cables suspending a portion of the bridge which rotates 90 degrees in order to allow water traffic to pass. When it swings to allow watercraft passage, the far end comes to a resting point on a stabilizing pylon.

El Puente de la Mujer es un puente giratorio diseñado por el arquitecto español Santiago Calatrava en la Ciudad de Buenos Aires, Argentina. Es la única de sus obras en América Latina y se encuentra ubicada en el Dique 3 de Puerto Madero, en Pierina Dealessi y Manuela Gorriti.El diseño es una síntesis de la imagen de una pareja bailando tango.----
