Is there anyone else, like me, fed up of the fuss being made over the Millennium footbridge? A bridge has one purpose, to carry its cargo from one side of an obstacle to the other.
There are many stunningly beautiful bridge designs which never threatened to compromise their true purpose but still remain pleasing to the eye. A perfectly practical bridge could have been designed and built for a fraction of the cost of the final design, or should I say ego trip?
There is one thing the news articles are not making clear. Is the client suing the client agent for such poor advice on the design?
