VISUAL ARTS BRIDGE
Nominee for RIBA President’s Bronze Medal 2007
Stride Treglown Prize for Design 2007
Visual Arts Bridge is a response to ‘The Future for Bath’, a long-term vision for the development and revitalisation of the world heritage city. Aside from providing the studio and exhibition spaces required by the client, the development will also strengthen the connections between Widcombe and the city, restore the various historical qualities of the site, and create a new landmark destination relating to Bath’s existing inhabited bridges.
The proposal promotes visual arts to the public through the integration of exhibition spaces into the public realm, and is the result of thorough analysis of the complex site and its constraints.
