Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0823053547, Hardcover)

Many of the bridges built during the past 10 years show a high degree of experimentation. Bridges are also starting to attract attention as important features of the cultural and architectural landscape. With an introduction by the acclaimed architectural critic Hugh Pearman, this captivating reference analyzes 30 bridges around the world that display the most cutting-edge architectural and engineering trends in recent bridge construction. Each bridge is displayed in full, lavish color, while the accompanying text, drawings, and details demonstrate how the bridge is constructed and what innovative design and engineering features it incorporates. Projects range from the impressive 5,328-foot Great Belt Link in Denmark to the innovative covered-tube walkway designed for the Plashet Grove School in East London, from the Charles River Mainline Bridge in Boston, Massachusetts, to the Roosevelt Lake Bridge in Phoenix, Arizona. Plus, readers will find dozens of other interesting projects by such internationally renowned architects and engineers as Jürg Conzett, Future Systems, T. Y. Lin, I. M. Pei, Modjeski and Masters, WilkinsonEyre Architects, and many others.
