Kurilpa Bridge #1
Of all of the bridges that span the Brisbane River, this is possibly the most controversial. The Kurilpa Bridge is a pedestrian and cycle bridge which cost A$63 million and it seems that either you like it or you don't. Personally I think it is a hideous jumble of metal and cables, and a ridiculous waste of money. It is the world's largest tensegrity bridge. This means that it produces a synergy between balanced tension and compression components to create a light structure that is incredibly strong.
Come back again for a closer look.
