Pont Des Trous


The Pont des Trous in Tournai, expertly restored by ANMA (Agence Nicolas Michelin & Associés), is a historic landmark seamlessly blending medieval heritage with contemporary design. This iconic bridge, originally part of Tournai's 13th-century fortifications, spans the Scheldt River, embodying centuries of architectural evolution. ANMA's sensitive restoration honors the bridge's storied past while integrating modern elements to ensure its longevity and relevance. The project involved meticulous preservation of the medieval stone arches and the introduction of sleek, transparent structures that enhance both aesthetic appeal and structural integrity. These additions provide stunning views of the river and city, creating a dialogue between history and modernity. The Pont des Trous now stands as a testament to the potential of thoughtful restoration to bridge eras and enhance cultural heritage. ANMA's work revitalizes this medieval gem, offering a renewed connection to Tournai's rich history while addressing contemporary urban needs.
