We collaborated with reForm to develop a design concept for a new bridge crossing between Rotherhithe and Canary Wharf.

With dozens of bridges to the West of Tower Bridge but none to the East, the bridge would provide an alternative travel option for the thousands travelling to and from Canary Wharf.

The unique design is a 185m central span supported by cables from angles masts at each side. The wishbone-like structures pivot to allow the bridge to lift at its centre and tall ships to pass. Masts also act as counterbalance weights, so the bridge can open very efficiently requiring approximately £10 of electricity to open at 2015 prices.
