What goes on inside an architect’s head?

A question that may often have been privately mused was voiced to the speaker in respect of differing opinions and approaches as to what constitutes a meritorious bridge when judging previous Bridge Awards. With referenced sources including current international bridge projects, an extensive compendium of quotes and the bridge aesthetics chapter of the new ICE Manual of Bridge Engineering 3rd edition, delegates will have the opportunity to get inside the head of one bridge Architect to examine the thought processes.
