Woman's bridge

The Puente de la Mujer is a cable-stayed pylon bridge designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava in the City of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

It is the only one of its works in Latin America and it is located in Dike 3 of Puerto Madero, in Pierina Dealessi and Manuela Gorriti. This is a work designed by the businessman Alberto González, who was a member of Grupo Madero [Clarification Required] and donated the money for its construction. González was entrusted to the Spanish architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava Valls.

It was manufactured by the company Urssa in the city of Vitoria, in the Basque Country, because the steel with which it was built is not manufactured in Argentina.

The design is a synthesis of the image of a couple dancing tango. The cost of the work was about six million dollars that were donated by Alberto González. It was realized in Vitoria, Spain, by the company Urssa initiated the construction of the bridge in 1998.
