The Infinity Bridge, which crosses the U.K.’s River Tees in Stockton, has been named a winner in the “steelwork at its most dramatic” category of the 2010 Structural Steel Design Awards program sponsored by European steel producer Corus. Some dramatic photos of the bridge are offered on lighting designer Speirs and Major Associates’ website.
The Sands SkyPark, which sits atop three 55-story hotel towers, opened June 23 in Singapore. Offering stunning views, it features an infinity pool 200m in the air and world’s longest public cantilever, thanks to support provided by 7,000 tonnes of structural steel. Additional information on its engineering is available on the Arup website.
Kevin Williams, a structural engineer with Price & Myers who assisted with the value engineering of the Kolkata demonstration project in Restello, India, discusses the innovative structural solutions they were able to achieve through the use of steel on the Living Steel website.
