A landmark for Auckland’s waterfront which celebrates the historic context of the site

Point Resolution - Taurarua Footbridge

Connecting Tamaki Drive to the iconic Parnell baths, the original pedestrian bridge was built in the 1930s and suffered severe structural fatigue. The concept we proposed for its replacement is fluid in the form, and elegant in its design simplicity.
The architecture and integration of structure and environment works perfectly for this footbridge and showcases what can be achieved when value is placed on building structures that are highly functional and in sync with the environment.
