The University of Limerick’s Living Bridge

You might remember something about this here and here.

The University of Limerick has built a beautiful footbridge on the River Shannon, designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects and constructed by Eiffel (yes, that Eiffel). It wanders over the river, among the tiny islands, undulating in the breeze and it flexes in sympathy with those who choose to cross it.  Or to put it another way: you can feel the deck beneath your feet moving up and down, as though it’s alive.  Which is why they call it the Living Bridge.

It opened last week, and tonight I wandered into the University campus to take a few pictures for you. I’ll bring more in daylight.
