I don't know why so many people seem to like Brooklyn Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge. Sure, they're imposing, but there are bridges just like them all around the world. Compared to some of the more modern (and old) bridges they are quite ugly.

Some people find size, length, and geographic location more important than design, and for most of the older bridges, their design was quite innovative as well.

But how do size, length or location make the actual bridge beautiful? Yes, a view of NY with Brooklyn Bridge is a nice picture, but surely it's the SCENE that is beautiful and not the BRIDGE? True, the Golden Gate Bridge was quite an innovative design (though a few suspension bridges came before it) but since when has an innovative design determined if something is beautiful?

As the title says, nominations for 'Most Beautiful Bridge'... Here are mine:

1. Tower Bridge, London (this is a classic design)
2. Seri Wawasan Bridge, Putrajaya (though I'd never heard of it before)
3. Millennium Bridge, Gateshead (a unique design and a unique solution)
