Renzo Piano’s Genoa San Giorgio Bridge features in today’s Dezeen Weekly newsletter
The Morandi Bridge collapsed in a storm almost two years ago in Renzo Piano’s home town of Genoa, killing 43 people.
Readers are impressed at the speed at which the architect completed the replacement bridge, with one commenting “Renzo Piano just gets it.”
“Its rapid reconstruction aims to become a model for the renovation and adaptation of Italian infrastructure with a high social, economic and strategic significance,” said Piano’s studio Renzo Piano Building Workshop.
Other stories in this week’s newsletter include a library in China designed to resemble a wormhole, a smart reading light that narrates books aloud and architects and designers in Beirut’s first-hand accounts of the recent explosion.
