Pedestrian Bridges: Ramps, Walkways, Structures

Pedestrian Bridges: Ramps, Walkways, Structures 

Duncan Cartlidge

Preference :

In recent decades a series of spectacular structures have established the pedestrian bridge as a general of its own within the broader field of bridge construction. Built-in the most diverse locations, in cities, parks, and landscapes, across streets, railways, rivers, or canyons, these bridges’ striking constructions, interesting trajectories, welcoming qualities, and often sculptural appearance are astonishing. Pedestrian bridges have long led a marginal existence and we have only gradually become aware that they could be more than purely functional structures. Pedestrian bridges must of course primarily be functional, but they should also engage with a site’s unique features, routes, topography, and context.
