PROJECT

16.022 | Tintagel Castle Footbridge

The design of this footbridge is based on the simple concept of recreating the link that once crossed the present void. The new bridge enhances the visitor experience, enabling more people to discover the site and facilitate its understanding. We proposed two independent cantilevers that reach out and almost touch in the middle. The structure tapers from a height of 4.5 m where it springs from the rock face to just 170 cm at the centre. The bridge’s materials are simple, durable and suited to the context of the site: painted steel, stainless Duplex steel, and local slate.
