Exhibition opens to showcase Network Rail footbridge designs
This new exhibition in the RIBA Practice Space at 66 Portland Place is on from 28 February 2019 to 3 April 2019 and features a selection of entries from the 2018 RIBA Competition to design a new Network Rail Footbridge.
Last year, Network Rail and RIBA Competitions sought design ideas for fully accessible footbridges that could be used across Britain’s rail network. The competition looked for innovative concepts that challenged presumptions and raised the bar of future design.
More than 120 entries were received from 19 countries and the panel chose Gottlieb Paludan Architects with Strasky, Husty and Partners Ltd as overall winner. They proposed a bold, elegant and uncluttered response that would create an uplifting experience to suit many contexts. Hawkins\Brown’s entry with WSP – a modular kit of parts – was highly commended.
The exhibition will include a diverse selection of entries, including the winning design.
RIBA’s headquarters at 66 Portland Place in London is a public building that engages a range of visitors from the public to professionals through free exhibitions and displays.
