Proceeding west from the Rolling Bridge, I'll skip past a very dreary cable-stayed footbridge and move on to one that is a little more interesting.
Structurally, it is not especially complex. The walkway is a simple grillage of steel beams, suspended at midspan by a single hanger, with diagonals partially obscured by the glazed enclosure above. The form is an inverted king post truss, which is about as simple as it gets. The walkway cantilevers to either side of the support structure, supporting structural glass balustrades.
Even visiting it on a dully grey day didn't harm it much. It helps distract from the dreary nature of the nearby building, and even from an adjacent construction site.
I like it.
