Renzo Piano has been chosen to rebuild the Ponte Morandi, a cable-stayed bridge in Genoa, Italy that collapsed in August. The architect, who has his office in Genoa, beat out Santiago Calatrava for the commission—he is also designing it for free. The project, a six-lane steel structure reminiscent of a boat, will take 12 months to build; it is expected to be completed by the end of 2019. Image courtesy Renzo Piano Building Workshop.
