Description

Bridges are arguably the most symbolic of man-made structures. Unique in their balance between structural and aesthetic concerns, they offer a physical representation of unity and optimism.

It is no coincidence that the dawn of this millennium has been marked all over the world by the building of bridges as the world has stepped into a new era. During this period, construction of monumental road or rail bridges has given way to a focus on the more intimate footbridge, reflecting the mounting concern for sustainability and the encouragement of healthier lifestyles.

Bridge design has traditionally been the domain of the engineer, but recently architects have been increasingly involved in the field, so that now this particular building type quite literally bridges the gap between the two disciplines. The examples featured in this book represent some of the most successful collaborations where architects and engineers, placed on an equal footing, have achieved extraordinarily innovative designs. Bridge Builders begins with an introductory essay examining the history of the bridge throughout the world from ancient times to the present, and analysing its symbolic significance and str uctural development. This account is followed by descriptions, drawings and photographs of an international selection of recent footbridges, showing the full diversity of current practice and providing an invaluable resource on the subject.
The Builders Series focuses on specific types of constructions, presenting vivid global examples by world-renowned architects. Packed full of construction methods, case studies, outstanding imagery and technical plans, these titles offer indispensable reference guides to assist you in planning and designing architecture for specific environments.
Bridge Builders provides a unique insight into modern bridge building by focusing on both the aesthetic and technical aspects of their construction. Beginning with a history of bridge construction, Martin Pearce goes on to showcase a selection of the best contemporary examples of foot bridges in modern architecture. Illustrated throughout with plans, drawings and high-quality colour photography, it serves as both an inspirational catalogue and visual reference guide.
- Lavishly illustrated with plans, drawings, and colour photographs.
- Features work from around the world by renowned architects and engineers.
