This bridge takes the form of a long spanning road bridge, scales it down and realises it in highly decorative materials. The bridge is situated such that it opens up a new route enabling leisurely walks through the surrounding landscape. Our response intends to knowingly revel a little in the pleasure a new bridge offers, as well as the utility. Imitating a shape associated with spanning hundreds of metres and applying it to a 30m span creates a delicate monumental quality. To further emphasise this, luxuriously fancy materials are used: post-tensioned pink marble piers and golden aramid fibre suspension cables.
