The Art in Architecture

Too cool not to share—although it has been around for a few years, the Gateshead Millenium Bridge , a pedestrian bridge over the River Tyne has just been brought to our attention by, Stephen Croft, a Rotarian visitor from the UK. Wilkinson Eyre Architects, and Gifford & Partners of the United Kingdom designed the pedestrian bridge in the shape of an eyelid, with the two arched segments moving in unison to let tall boats through, making it unlike any other bridge we know about. This is very much a case of art in architecture. Check it out for yourself.—Ruth Mitchell
