This competition winning idea for a unique skeletal structure was conceived by drawing inspiration from a dinosaur’s spine. The technical originality of the bridge is that it is designed so it can be constructed from one side only.
This project gained much critical acclaim and media exposure including a feature on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ (BBC TV).
‘This was the one we felt best expressed the theme of “an image of the bridge of the future”. The graphical image is striking, with the derivations of the idea clearly expressed. The brief referred to the world of nature, and the relationship between nature and the structure are explored well. The bridge would be a joy to walk over’. - Judges’ comments
