13 Of The Most Beautiful Proposals For A Planned Pedestrian Bridge In London

Published 5 years ago

Tower Bridge isn’t the only bridge in London, though it is the most iconic. Well, The London Borough of Wandsworth is having a competition for a new bridge between Nine Elms and Pimlico, and the results so far seem somewhat crazy. It has to be a pedestrian and a cyclists bridge, so the plans feature many long and winding ramps. Other than that, it’s a free game, and people are going wild with the plans. While there are plenty of regular, one ark, this-is-somewhat-futuristic bridges, others are totally crazy, looking like alien infestation or a ruler that someone dropped on the river. Some add lights, some even enclose the bridge!

Of course, you can’t go too wild. The envisaged capital funding would be around 40 million of Queen’s own pound (around $60 million). So the designers shouldn’t go too crazy, but, as you can see from some of the projects, they still do. A few even think that straight line from A to B is an affront to good taste and are trying to make the route longer via various curving designs.

Maybe it’s London itself that brings out the ambition in people.
