Alte Rheinbrücke, Tavanasa
Switzerland's modern reinforced concrete bridge construction reached an early peak thanks to Robert Maillart's pioneering achievements in the first two decades of this century. It was only with the Tavanasa Bridge that Maillart succeeded in creating a design that consistently detached itself from the models of stone construction and illustrated the hollowing out and dissolution of the building. An avalanche destroyed the building, which already pointed to the international style in 1905. Today's bridge is still well reminiscent of Maillart's structural considerations. In the 19th century, it was regarded as a bridge construction achievement.
