Footbridge, Pembroke College, Oxford

As part of their new masterplan development, Pembroke College desired a pedestrian bridge between the historic college buildings and the new, linking past and present. The vision was to provide a light skyway that was robustly anchored in the Fellow’s Garden of the existing college and then gracefully projected over the listed Ancient Monument stone wall and Brewer Street below to gently touch the more delicate, modern construction of the new build. The bridge is sculptural Corten steel with singular 9m long glass balustrades linking the new and existing college buildings.

Completed 2013.
