24 July - 20 September 2008
As London both expands along the Thames Gateway and prepares for the 2012 Olympic Games it will require new bridges to make new connections. SPANS explores a select number of contemporary bridges to explore different approaches to design, celebrating the joy of crossing, connecting places and engineering. Case studies will include both major arteries and small pedestrian footbridges giving equal importance to both.
The exhibition is part of the joint Building Centre/New London Architecture education programme and will be curated and produced by The Building Centre Trust.
