An impressive proposal for the Salford Meadows Bridge named The O bridge, the design was created in collaboration between Alex Daxböck and Chris Precht from Penda Design.
A continuously truss system is carrying a wooden finishing for a walk path and glazed, semi transparent handrails. With it‘s DDA compliant gradient of 1/20, both endings are generously widened to invite pedestrians. The walkway merges into a a terraced landscape, which can be used for sunbathing during the day and as an open air theatre at dawn. Hence its slope, the landing point of the bridge provides a great view over the Meadows. The O – cafe was integrated into the sliced landscape with direct view to the Irwell River and the O. – from the designers.
