St Philips Footbridge features in new Bristol book

07 June 2019

One of Knight Architects' latest structures, St Philips footbridge, has featured in "From Brycgstow to Bristol in 45 Bridges" by Jeff Lucas. This beautifully-produced book tells the story of each of the 45 bridges which span the main waterways of Bristol between Avonmouth and St Anne's.

Writing about the bridge, the author comments:

"St Philip’s Footbridge is a brilliant example of how aesthetic, structural and functional needs have been simultaneously met by thoughtful and painstaking design to create one of Bristol’s most beautiful bridges. To a setting which is rather a mish-mash, it brings a quiet, still point of modernist order. Ten out of ten.”
