Peace Bridge

Peace Bridge

Straddling the Mtkvari river in Tbilisi, Georgia, is a new pedestrian bridge, courtesy of Italian architect  Michel de Lucchi and French lighting director Philippe Martinaud. The structure is composed of glass and iron connecting Old Tbilisi with the new district, and boasts a 150m roof of steel and glass.

The bridge provides a unique view of old Tbilisi. It also possesses an interactive light display system. 30,000 LEDs and 240 sensors installed within the structure convey specific messages, scrolling across the two parapets of the bridge every hour. According to Georgian president, Mikheil Saakashvili, the Peace Bridge is a symbol of Georgia’s way from the past to a better future.
