The Sackler Crossing by John Pawson

Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, London

The Sackler Crossing plots a serpentine path, its deck set the minimum possible distance from the lake's surface, allowing visitors to feel they are literally taking a walk across the water. this sense is enhanced by glimpsed views between the deck treads and by the near invisibility of the supporting structure. the spare material palette of granite and bronze reinforces the elemental character of the design.
