'the work is resolved with great delicacy and eloquence'

The Bridge of Aspiration, executed by Martin Knight of Wilkinson Eyre, links the Royal Opera House to the Royal Ballet School.

The structure slopes and is skewed laterally to compensate for the openings in the two buildings not coinciding. The timber, aluminium and glass concertina cladding takes a quarter turn over its length and is supported on an aluminium spine beam.
