Degree of Freedom, in collaboration with the Norwegian architectural practice Snøhetta and the London-based consulting engineers Price & Myers, took part in the international design competition for a new pedestrian and cycle bridge over the River Thames between Nine Elms and Pimlico.



The design was required to meet an exacting brief to create a landmark structure whilst maintaining a 150m wide navigation channel and integrating pedestrian and cycle traffic.


The proposed cable-stayed bridge adopted an S-shape in plan to accommodate ramp access for cyclists at the same time as giving a design that minimised the impact at the landing points. 


Of the 82 pre-qualified teams and as many proposals, and despite not being one of the four finalists, our team was one of the few that was mentioned in the evaluation.
