On Gulls Wings

As a bridge sits above a body of water, so too must it respect and fear such a dangerous yet life-giving mass. Moreno Ratti of Cactus Design understands this and presents thusly a bit of bridge architecture that’s as naturally integrated with the water as the birds that fly above it. This is the “Gulle,” a symbol meant to represent the seagull and harness its winged power to deal with the turbulence whipping against, around, below and on top of the bridge on a day-to-day basis.

Respect, understanding, and collaboration. That’s the name of the game when you’re talking about constructing bridges. Moreno Ratti shows here a splendid way of both keeping the bridge tight fitted to the surface and sparkling wonderful in our humble eyes. What a lovely place it would be to walk.
