Design for bridging

  • Comment

'Bridging Art and Science' is the title of a forthcoming book and exhibition from Wilkinson Eyre, architect of the Magna project (pages 12 and 13) and other projects that are among the most imaginative in the UK. Running from 6 April to 20 May, the exhibition will be at London's Science Museum, where the practice's work includes an interactive steel and glass bridge in the Challenge of Materials Gallery and the ground-floor fit-out of the Wellcome Wing. Unsurprisingly, given the venue, both the exhibition and the book will 'examine links between science, art and nature to cutting edge architecture and design'.

As well as Magna, projects will include:

the station and train-maintenance depot at Stratford for the Jubilee Line Extension; Gateshead Millennium Bridge; the recently opened science centre, Explore@Bristol; the Dyson research and development building at Malmesbury; and many of the innumerable bridges that have become a hallmark of the practice. The book costs £40 and will be published by Booth Clibborn Editions.
