Corroded steel cables emerge from the riverbed and become a branching, nervous system-like structure. Dealing with the destruction, healing, despair and desire, the perpetual transformations of the shape-shifting architecture unfold the myths surrounding the work of the Yugoslavian architect and his devotion to build a pavilion using the ruins of the bridge that was destroyed in the second world war.
