Wynyard Bridge, Durham, UK

Completed 2002
Client: Durham Council
Team: FoRM Partners in charge Igor Marko and Peter Fink

A more dynamic identity for a new bridge over the A689 dual carriageway to be used by cyclists and pedestrians, completing the sea-to-sea National Cycling Sustran route.

Visual dynamism of the bridge was achieved by adding two series of parallel 'fan' like steel profiles, balancing on the structure of the bridge and over sailing the deck. Positioned along two sides of the structure, the geometry of the fans creates several new horizontal and cross sectional profiles for the bridge as a whole. With vivid alternate colours, dynamic profiles and lighting the bridge's standard cable-stay design becomes animated and clearly visible from afar.
