The World's Most Spectacular Pedestrian Bridge
Seafarers Bridge is located adjacent to the Yarra’s edge development on the north bank and the heritage sheds on the south bank of Melbourne’s Yarra River. The architect, Grimshaw Partners, had a very clear vision for the Seafarers Bridge, which consisted of a bridge deck supported by steel ties connected to elliptical arches over a main span of 75 metres.
The function of the bridge is to connect the north and south banks of the river while providing a formal entrance to the new Melbourne Convention Centre.
This siting allows the bridge to behave as a ‘street’ to naturally connect two previously underutilized public spaces as well as generally connecting the Docklands back to Southbank.
