location London
function bridge
contributed by Future_Systems

The bridge links two areas of very different scale. On the one side a vast commercial development and on the other the more delicate proportions of 19th century warehouses and a quayside piazza. By creating a low floating structure emphasis is placed on the horizontal stretch of water rather than the vertical dominance of Canary Wharf. The slender form of the bridge is evocative of a brightly coloured insect touching the water as lightly as a water skater, offering pedestrians a sense of freedom as they cross. Colour is central to the concept – like a laser beam of light the bridge skims the dock with a piercing lime green line, the sense of perspective exaggerated by the tapering plan of the deck.
