Arq.-Ing. Santiago Calatrava Vals

Este puente hace de union peatonal entre el Dique 3 y Puerto Madero.

Tiene un sistema de rotación, que permite el tráfico de embarcaciones a través del dique.

Mide de largo unos 160m y de ancho 5m.

La obra costo 6 millones de dolares y fue donada a la ciudad por la familia Gonzalez (residente en España).

El arquitecto que lo diseño figuro con este puente el baile del Tango. El hombre lo penso con la torre y a la mujer, la penso en forma horizontal, como una pareja de tango mientras danzan.
