Bridges

+ Project Description

Working closely with the renowned engineer Mark Whitby (father of Alex), we have designed various bridges that fuse the practical task of crossing a body of water with the pleasurable experience of beautiful engineering and spatial design.

The proposals range from an opening bridge based on a sculpture by Alexander Calder for Paddington Basin, London, to a concrete cantilevered sword-like structure in Salford that creates a new civic square at its tip.

The designs fuse the essence of engineering elegance and innovation with a keen understanding of how the structures are situated on an urban scale, both as crossing points and as spaces for people to stop and admire.
