Brussels Exhibition Centre Walkway
Samyn and Partners were commissioned to build a walkway over a nearby motorway to reconnect a large car park to the exhibition centre. The walkway uses wood elements to produce an extremely strong yet largely transparent structure to link the car park with the trade fair complex (a large space that forms part of the exhibition centre). Wood elements enclose the walkway on both sides and are positioned to form two truss systems. The attractive nature of the trusses adds to the walkway’s aesthetic merit.
