Futuristic and Fanciful Design Proposals for a Planned Pedestrian Bridge in London

Published by:

Sci-Fi Designs for London Bridge Competition

The Wandsworth Council in London is currently holding a design competition for a planned pedestrian and bicycle bridge that will span the Thames between Nine Elms and Pimlico. So far the competition has attracted 87 design proposals, many of which are strikingly ambitious, even bizarre. While the designs themselves are remarkable, the competition seeks to select the best team of designers and engineers, rather than the final bridge design. The winning team will be selected in July.

Google Unveils Plans for a New Mountain View Campus With Moveable Structures Housed Under Giant Canopies

Published by:

New Google Campus Design

Today Google unveiled plans to redevelop their Mountain View, California campus with an innovative complex of new buildings. The plan–conceived by architects Bjarke Ingels of BIG and Thomas Heatherwick of Heatherwick Studio–calls for lightweight block-like structures housed under massive and airy canopies. The blocks will be moveable to accommodate the changing needs of Google’s various teams. The translucent canopies will protect the structures while admitting natural light and outside air. The project also calls for public spaces, bike paths, and the restoration of nearby natural habitats.
