Bridging a gap

  • Comment

A splendid new book by engineer/architect Matthew Wells, 30 Bridges (Laurence King), provides a considered guide to this fashionable-again design subject.

With a good introduction by Hugh Pearman, and a real designer's view of what was important in bridge design historically, this is much more than a picture book. Interestingly, the critique of the Foster/Arup 'wobbly bridge', given Wells' criticism of the project, is admirably fair-minded.
