The project

This special object was designed as a part of a larger project called the "Esplanade du Jet d'Eau". The esplanade runs for a distance of about 200 m from the wharf to the rotunda around the Jet d’Eau. The decking is about 4 m wide and is made from solid oak beams sourced exclusively from the forests of Geneva.

Thirty metres from the wharf, the esplanade crosses an access channel to the port for small vessels. To maintain the fluidity of the space, we designed a whole new type of walkway. The structure rises like a wave to let boats go through, without interrupting the flow of pedestrians who can keep on walking.
