Loving this new steel single span footbridge by Gagarin Studio and DP Squared in Leeds. It manages to be beautifully minimal, spanning delicately across the river whilst also being visually stimulating with its undulating concertina like form. It almost appears as if it has been stretched out to span between the two banks.

Great campaign by The Architects' Journal on World Earth Day promoting a 'work with what you've got' ethic. This is perhaps the easiest way Architects can take action against climate change by restoring/renovating and re-purposing existing buildings.

Light Touch....

….on a beautiful Norweigan landscape. A Norweigan practice Kappland Arkitekter have designed this timber retreat which hovers on the hillside supported by piles to minimise the impact on this wild terrain. This is a sensitive structure which succeeds in respecting rather than dominating its surroundings. 

Internally the building cleverly follows the fall of the hillside with the large expanses of glazing providing views over to the sea in one direction and up the hillside in the other.
