London Bridge is Rolling Up

Illustration for article titled London Bridge is Rolling Up

The lightbulb of London studio Heatherwick, this innovative rolling bridge can be found in the city's Paddington Basin development. Constructed from wood and steel, the 12-meter-long structure curls itself into a ball to let water traffic through. It would be fun to see it in action, rising up rather like a rampant fighting caterpillar from its original postition, lying over the water. Hmmm, nice imagery, even though I say it myself.
