McDowell+Benedetti is winner of international competition for new opening bridge in Hull 

McDowell+Benedetti have won the international competition for a new opening bridge in Hull, UK, which uniquely allows people to stay on while it moves. The landmark form creates a focus for regeneration on both banks of the River Hull, including a series of new public spaces and a cafe within the bridge. The project will be completed with Alan Baxter & Assoc., Qualter Hall, Whitelaw Turkington and RKL.

The rotating ramped bridge creates a large new public urban space and multi-use internal space to enjoy the riverscape. The slowly revolving geometry allows people the unique experience of walking onto and riding the bridge while it moves.

A zoomorphic shape covered in re-cycled rubber provides full surface safe access for walking, sitting and riding. New public spaces animate each bank and integrate the new route with the historic City centre and the new mixed-use development.
