~ Thomas Heatherwick, Glass Bridge, Kingscross

Heatherwick Studio  Glass Bridge, Kingscross London
A bridge designed of glass with no metal fixings "As one of the principle qualities of glass is its high compressive strength, the proposal is to take sheets of glass and use gravity to apply sufficient pressure to compress them together to act as a beam."

The bridge will be lit internally - quite something to see if constructed


I'm a fan of Thomas Heatherwick Studio - having seen their work at the Wellcome Trust & worth taking a look http://www.heatherwick.com/bleigiessen/
