timgriffithphoto Transport Tuesday!

Designed by Denton Corker Marshall (DCM) in collaboration with artist Robert Owen, Webb Bridge crosses over the Yarra River as part of a public art project in Melbourne’s Docklands area
The design received first prize in a limited design competition held in 2005. The brief called for the re-use of the remaining sections of the Webb Dock Rail Bridge, in order to link the Docklands on the north side to the new residential developments on the south side. The bridge comprises two distinct sections: the 145m long existing structure and a new curved 80m long ramped link. The ramp takes up level changes and creates a point of arrival at the south bank. Both are joined seamlessly, with an emphasis on volume and containment within the curved and sinuous form.
My primary interest was in exploring the curvaceous form of the design as more of an abstract object rather than obviously connecting to some specific point, purpose or destination. The resulting image still has volume and structure by retains an air of mystery and fluidity.
