Fisherman’s Bridge, Lake District National Park by Honey

  • Comment

This bridge, situated in the Lake District National Park and made using only local fabricators, allows locals to cross the river even during floods

The bridge’s shape responds to the forces it carries: deep at mid-span, where loads are greatest, and slender at the edges. A handrail weaves between steel uprights that sway with the movement of people crossing. Using the hollow deck as an amplifier, the uprights, which are cut off at specific heights, play a specially composed tune when struck.
Cost: £17,500
