The £35.5m Kurilpa Bridge in Australia has been officially opened to the public.
Touted as the world’s largest tensegrity bridge, it has been designed by a collaboration between Australian Cox Rayner and Arup.
The bridge, 470m long and 6.5m wide, has viewing decks and a canopy supported by a secondary tensegrity structure, and is based on Richard Buckminster Fuller’s principle of tensegrity.
The bridge features an LED lighting scheme that operates entirely using solar energy, which will save around 37.8t of carbon emissions a year.
