Movable footbridge bridge, London


Knight Architects have completed a bridge in London that is both simple and spectacular. In collaboration with structural engineers AKT II, the bridge experts installed 5 steel beams that open and close in sequence, rising to different angles using hydraulic jacks and assisted by counterweights.

The moving footbridge bridge is located in Paddington, London and spans the 20-meter width of the Grand Union Canal.
