Te Wero Bridge: creating and developing the design

Bridge projects such as Te Wero provide opportunities to create instantly recognisable symbols of particular cities, and great bridges are elegant and distinctive enough to evoke wonder and create an attraction in their own right. A key objective for the Te Wero project is to exploit modern technologies and techniques to reflect Auckland's passion for innovation. This paper considers the function and visual aspects of the project, its form and image, together with consideration of materials, design and construction issues that led to the final bridge design.
