Australian engineering firm Aurecon has released this video explaining how it merged engineering, architecture and landscape to create a landmark bridge design.
The 120m horizontal suspension bridge spans the Yarra River, and is named after local footballer and philanthropist Jim Stynes.
The bridge connects the Melbourne’s central business district to the Docklands area of the city.
For cyclists and pedestrians, the bridge arcs out 30m over the river and creates the illusion it is hovering, unsupported, above it.
It was designed by a consortium led by the Aurecon Group in partnership with Cox Architecture and Oculus Landscape Architects.
