"Macroscopic negligence" behind bridge decay in Venice


Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava's glass and steel bridge in Venice does not measure up. According to an Italian court, the architect now demands that the architect pay damages to the city of SEK 830,000.

According to the court, Santiago Calatravas has shown "macroscopic negligence" when drawing the bridge. It is because he may not have had in mind that almost 30 million tourists visit Venice every year, they say. It reports Artnet news.

Calatrava's Venice Bridge, which opened in 2008, has attracted both attention and criticism over the years. Already in 2014, the city of Venice sued Calatrava because of the bronze condition. Then the architect thought that it was partly all tourists' luggage bags that tainted the bronze construction.

However, the case was won by the city when the court considered it "inevitable" with rolling bags on the bridge and with its location near Venice train station.
