The Kurilpa Bridge is the brainchild of Cox Rayner Architects – the Brisbane studio of Australian firm Cox Architecture – although Arup acted as both structural engineer and design partner. Photograph is by Kgbo. Viewed from most perspectives, the bridge looks like a mess of cables and beams. The slender round beams extend out at different angles, and steel cables branch out from them to support the 470-metre-long deck. The design team described it as the "world's first tensegrity bridge", due to its combination of components in tension and in compression.

Neither Cox Rayner nor Arup, lead by its engineer Tristram Carfrae, had any particular metaphor in mind when designing the bridge, but sought to demonstrate a completely new way to span a river that Brisbane could embrace as its own. If anything, we thought more abstractly of dance or contemporary symphony – seeing the bridge as a convergence of art and structure leading people towards the city’s art galleries.
