The winners of the Footbridge Awards 2011 were announced at the Footbridge 2011 conference in Wrocław, Poland, on 6th July. The venue was Wrocław Town Hall, and the awards results were dominated by Belgium's Ney and Partners, and Germany's Schlaich Bergermann und Partner (SBP). I will have more to report from the Footbridge conference when I get time.
I've included links if I have previously posted anything substantial on the individual bridge.
