As well as with elements that conect banks, these large infrastructure high costs are useful to bring two points separated by a water source, but what about the residual spaces that are generated under these items? The project is located in Zagreb to develop a a public space in a vehicular bridge across the river zava, a fundamental urban axis to the dynamic city, however the project could be located in different public spaces of European cities preserving its purpose -make public space recycling existing infrastructure – Sources water not taken the value they deserve , the company consumer has chosen to turn them into sewers. But water is a vital element for life and architecture from awareness can make it do that this is important. We think the public space to framing water landscapes with the generation of projects put in connection with people water sources. Beneath the motorway bridge and in nearby areas, a programe of activities to reative this area in disuse has been started.
