As a little person there is one thing that every child, no matter their age, intelligence, social class, sex or even how dull they are, they will find joy in Lego. Little plastic bricks that can be fashioned into houses, robots, cars, people, animals, airports, roads, weapons etc etc. And when you grow up…. real life bridges. How many designers and architects have been inspired by these little blocks?
SF loves this because it is lego inspired, but is much more that a eye catching design. It is designed for fun with the smooth tracks for cycling, boarding or skating, plus the stairs up and down work those glutes but also the wave allows for different perspectives as you make your way across. Design should work on many levels and this does. So this is not only necessary as it looks good but works the mind, the body and the senses.
This bridge by Michael Jantzen has not been built yet but I think it would work very well in Hackney. I’ll make a suggestion to the council post haste
