In pictures: Olympic Central Park Bridge by Heneghan Peng and AKT II

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK + DRAWINGS] Heneghan Peng and AKT II’s permanent Z-shaped Olympic Park bridge sits beneath a 54 metre-wide multicoloured temporary deck

For the duration of the Olympics and Paralympics the two permanent bridges, linked by a narrow diagonal span, have a temporary infill placed between them to accommodate the crowds. After the Games these temporary elements will be removed to create two seperate linked bridges.

The removal of the infils will reveal two landscaped bowls, created on either side of the historic lock, linking the upper park concourse with lower level towpaths and waterways.

The underside of the permanent structure is clad in mirror polished stainless steel designed to catch the sunlight off the water’s surface and reflect it back into the surroundings to create an active space at the level of the towpaths.
