Onepoto Footbridge

Location: North Shore, Auckland, New Zealand

Latitude: 36°48'43.2"S
Longitude: 174°45'00.0"E

Completed: 2008

The design of the bridge was born out of a series of formal experimentation with the properties of glue-laminated timber beams. Unique rib components were geometrically crafted with varying lengths which once
grouped in a specific order emerge into the undulating sinuous form. This dynamic form conceals its concrete base and at the same time, delivers an organic sensory experience for its users and by-passers.
