Judges’ Comments:

This exciting project shows high quality steelwork as sculpture and structure on a civic scale. The arch is formed of a pair of aerofoil section tubular lattices with perforated stainless steel sheathing, which are internally lit to provide a glittering shape in the night sky, while the bridge, with its unsupported spiral lower ramp formed of a tubular spine and coloured glass fins, is a fine example of a complex torsion structure which makes a strong visual statement.                             [Source: steelconstruction.org]
