Moxon reveals dramatic cable net crossing for River Dee
Moxon Architects and structural engineer Flint & Neill have unveiled plans for a £1 million foot and cycle bridge over the River Dee near Braemar in Scotland
Supported by a ‘cable net valley of inclined hangers’, the 85 metre-long crossing will connect the settlement with the nearby Cairngorm massif mountain range.
The suspended structure for client Braemar Community features a ‘slender silhouette’ to create a ‘unique spatial experience’ for users.
Its V-shaped pylons influence the suspension net’s geometry and create a gateway to the local wilderness area.
