Kurilpa Bridge: Brisbane's New Bridge, Hardback Book

Kurilpa Bridge: Brisbane's New Bridge Hardback

Hardback

Description

A visual feast brought to life by architectural innovators Cox Rayner - featuring hundreds of spectacular full-color photographs - capturing the sculptural marvel that is Kurilpa Bridge. The Kurilpa Bridge project was an opportunity to not only make a new pedestrian and cycle connection across Brisbane's river, it was an opportunity to form a new public space.

The result is a symbol of a city which is forging an identity at the forefront of art, science, and technology.

The concept was based upon Buckminster Fuller's principles of tensegrity (tensional integrity).

Its priority was to simultaneously resolve unusual physical challenges, such as navigational constraints and motorway spanning, and embrace the spirit of a city which is relaxed, subtropical, and seeking to prioritise walking, cycling, and healthy lifestyle.

SELLING POINTS: - Explores and celebrates a bridge made significant by its embodiment of Brisbane's emergence as a contemporary design city, featuring over 150 pages of detailed descriptions and spectacular full-colour photography 28 col., 150 b.andw.
