Dolomite Bridge

North East, London

A slender suspension bridge for cyclists and pedestrians across a 30m high gorge in North-East Italy. The taut spinal structure of deck and balustrade elements strung on a gentle curve of outrigger cables gives users a dramatic experience of the gorge and creates an expressive new landmark for the town.
