Tintagel Castle: Bridge Design Competition Shortlist

We are delighted to announce that MBA and Flint & Neill have been short-listed as one of six teams selected to proceed to the second stage of the Tintagel Castle: Bridge Design Competition.

Our team’s submission was one of 137 initial applications which included submissions from 27 different countries, including the United States, Russia, India, Japan, South Africa, and Chile.

The new £4m bridge will be 28 metres higher than the current crossing and will span 72 metres, offering exhilarating views across Tintagel, the surrounding coastline, and the Atlantic seascape.

Tintagel Castle in north Cornwall has been prized throughout history for its elemental beauty and spirit of place. It is one of the most spectacular historic sites within English Heritage’s care and inextricably linked to the legend, King Arthur. The brief therefore asks finalists to design a beautiful, structurally elegant bridge which will be in harmony with the ancient monument that lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
