Bridge copy?

Do you think that the first bridge looks like a copy of the second one?


...The danish architects Dissing+Weitling claim that the architect student Tim Norlund who just won a english architect competition copyied their design for a brigde. Does it look like a copy to you or just a coincident?

To me it doesn't look like a copy. It truely looks like the student was inspired by the idea of the circle but besides that I don't think that it can be considered a copy.

I can see the similarity. Couldn't say if it was a copy or not.

No I dont think it is, apart from the circle there are many diffrences such as the curveture of the first bridge and the cables holding both bridges. Not to mention location
