    Gallery of Bridges

    by ArchitectureWeek

    Whether crossing an atrium, street, canal, canyon, or sound, whether ancient, historic, modern, or high-tech, made of stone, concrete, steel, or glass, the bridge is a special kind of connecting structure.

    Topologically, where most buildings exist largely to enclose space in varying degrees, bridges tend to puncture it.

    While buildings, especially the buildings of our current age, may hide their structure behind a complex skin, most bridges are expressively frank in their structural gymnastics, sometimes to the point of exhibitionism.

    These are some of our favorites,* old and new.
