The role of the designer and architect in the planning and design
of bridges is undergoing radical change, with architects now being
appointed before the engineer on a growing number of projects. The
relationship between the two roles is therefore on a different
level than either will have previously experienced.
This book details the process of design whereby the inspiration
for a bridge is developed into the final reality of the built
solution. It looks at the functions of a bridge, defining purpose
of place and context, the spirit of creativity and the reasoned
progression of an idea.
