urban Architecture

The Bridge of Remembrance in Hobart links two of the city’s most significant public spaces – the Cenotaph and Soldiers Memorial Avenue on the Queens Domain. The design is respectful to the sensitive cultural heritage and environmental values of the site. It is elegant and restrained while being open to multiple interpretations, providing the space, physically and mentally, for people to pause and reflect. An elegant, twisting plane, the 200-metre-long bridge connects both sides of the broad highway entering Hobart, providing a distinctive entry portal to the city. The four-metre-wide bridge emerges from the ground as an angular shard of metal, forming the vertical retaining wall at the base of the ramp. The plane slowly leans back, momentarily reaching a horizontal position at the end of Anzac Parade, before continuing to twist and slowly rising to near vertical as it terminates on the western side.
