The construction system applied in this masterpiece of architecture was the concrete. This technical desission was taken because it was used a new kind of concrete thus the micro fractures were not considered a patology .- It can resist the movements made by the wind and it can absorb this tensions.-
The problem was the bridge linked between the towers because each one has different movements at different times. So the conections to the towers was resolved by four telescopics steel beams. This is a very interesting solution.
