the Gate

The Golden Gate has it hands down. The other four here are all great and the new one in France is off the chart in the wow factor. Mr. Foster you have really done it this time, it is beautiful. That said, no bridge can match the grace and beauty of the Golden Gate. The location is unmatched and it changes with every fogbank, tide,or sunset.

I was in Australia last year and I have to say the Sydney Harbor Bridge is of the same caliber as any of these.

For me it was a tie between the Golden Gate (classic one and great setting) and Erasmus (great modern design). I finally chose Erasmus... probably because I know that one better and I know what a great thing it has done for Rotterdam.

Among all bridges I would choose Santiago Calatrava's Orleans Bridge. From mentioned above, Golden Gate would do.
