The Helix Bridge,Singapore Designed By Cox Rayner Architects

The World Architecture Festival Awards recognise excellence in international architecture, including both completed and future projects. The third year of the Awards received over 500 entries from 61 countries and Programme Director Paul Finch said, “The geographical range and quality of this year’s designs were exceptionally high, with a great deal of entries from ‘new’ economies, both by local architects and international practices.” The Helix Bridge in Singapore, designed by Cox Rayner Architects, won the World’s Best Transport Building. The judges praised the unique weaving structure of The Helix Bridge, saying: “The structure, which is derived from its ability to curve in plan and section due to its helical form, will become an important addition to the pedestrian experience in Singapore both in daytime and at night. The scale for the pedestrian is very important with viewing pods integrated in the solution, providing opportunities for informal gatherings.”.....more at ADR
