Heatherwick Studio and actor, campaigner Joanna Lumley came up with an idea for a new pedestrian bridge across the River Thames – Garden Bridge, the scheme that will connect North and South London with a garden. For one of the greenest cities in the world it will be a another precious piece of landscape and support many indigenous river edge plant species.
The proposed 367-meter bridge project got approval from local councils. According to words of Thomas Heatherwick, the bridge will be a very special place either for crossing, relaxing in or looking back at the rest of the city’s sights.
The bridge will cost not small amount of money – £175 million. It raised a lot of questions and criticism and they had to defend why their project deserves it more than the others. Heatherwick said : “This project creates a new and extraordinary views of London framed by nature.” The Garden Bridge is expected to begin construction next year. (via dezeen.com)
