About Book

With an introduction by the architectural critic Hugh Pearman, this reference analyzes 30 bridges around the world that display the most cutting-edge architectural and engineering trends in late 20th-century bridge construction. Each bridge is displayed in full, lavish color, while the accompanying text, drawings, and details demonstrate how the bridge is constructed and what innovative design and engineering features it incorporates. Projects range from the 5,328-foot Great Belt Link in Denmark to the covered-tube walkway designed for the Plashet Grove School in East London, from the Charles River Mainline Bridge in Boston, Massachusetts, to the Roosevelt Lake Bridge in Phoenix, Arizona. Plus, readers will find dozens of other projects by such internationally renowned architects and engineers as Jürg Conzett, Future Systems, T. Y. Lin, I. M. Pei, Modjeski and Masters, WilkinsonEyre Architects, and many others.
