Millenium Footbridge near the Lowry, Salford Quays, 1998 - 2000

Known as the Lowry Footbridge it spans the Manchester Ship Canal thereby linking Michael Wilford's Lowry Centre with Daniel Libeskind's Imperial War Museum North.  The bridge has been described as looking, "like two giant wishbones welded together, as if part of a vast skeleton had been re-used to support the bridge."  The bridge is attributed to the international engineering company Parkman but the superstructure was designed by the Spanish architect, Carlos Fernandez Casado.
