Aspiration Bridge - Covent Garden, London, UK. Twisting high above Floral Street in Covent Garden, the 'Bridge of Aspiration', provides the dancers of the Royal Ballet School with a direct link to the Royal Opera House.
Early 17th century Fort de Roovere is surrounded by a moat and was originally built without a bridge. Yet, as part of a recent restoration program, it required the addition of an access bridge. Out of respect for the fort’s original island status, Netherlands-based RO Architecten constructed the Moses Bridge Stairs, a discreet “sunken” bridge that sits flush with the line of the soil and the water. The result is an almost invisible bridge that partially immerses pedestrians into the moat.
