El pont de Montolivet, Valencia, Spain

Santiago Calatrava
Date Built
1986 - 1989
City of Arts and Sciences
This elegant bridge, that spans Santiago Calatrava's City of Arts and Sciences, is something of a mystery.  It has every appearance of being designed by Calatrava but I cannot find proof of that on his website.  It certainly isn't listed as one of his projects. 

The bridge has two decks each with a roadway and a pedestrian pathway.  They are anchored at the ends and are supported on tree-like structures below. 

They are also supported by piers on the central walkway, between shallow pools of water, that connects the Palau de les Arts with the Hemisferic.
