1386 (10") St James Park Bridge. Category 11: Park and Garden Structures
Michael J. Cady: USA
Designed to be located in Londons St. James Park, the proposed bridge manifests qualities indicative of bamboo as a material and a plant: as the bridge ascends rapidly from dense structural roots in the ground, it flows outwards like a large growth of bamboo. Critical joints are held together with steel spacers, steel collars, mortar, and concrete.
