Future Systems designs Irish bridge

Future Systems is working with the Dublin Docklands Development Authority on a design for the Luas Bridge across the Royal Canal at Docklands North Lotts. Amanda Levete [of Future Systems] describes the project as “incredibly slender, soft and languid. It curves up at the edges like a manta ray. We wanted it appear as a piece of land art that relates to the park”.

We see this bridge as a unique opportunity to deliver a remarkable piece of architectural legacy and a very positive addition to the planned Royal Canal Linear Park” said Paul Maloney, Chief Executive, Docklands Authority. “The park is major landscape architecture project for the Docklands Authority, and one which we believe will transform the stretch of the Royal Canal where it enters the River Liffey.

Construction of the bridge should begin in the fall of 2007.
