Adelaide, Glass Footbridge

The footbridge links the city’s historic railway station, a listed monument, to a newly-constructed Drama Theatre complex at Adelaide’s Festival Theatre.

The Adelaide Festival Bridge is part of a dynamic urban streetscape project completed in 2004 to revitalize the Festival Center and promenade precinct. The bridge links two buildings that are very different architecturally, yet succeeds in retaining the identity of each of these buildings while also creating its own, by using laminated glass in a way not often seen in civic structures.
