EDWIN FLACK BRIDGE
The construction of the new National Tennis Centre is well advanced and due for completion in mid-December. Part of this project is the new Edwin Flack Bridge pedestrian bridge that spans Olympic Boulevard from the plaza of the Tennis Centre to the Podium of Aami Park. The bridge was conceived as an undulating and transparent form that is entirely charcoal in colour so that it blends into the evening sky and wont detract from the urban scale of both the NTC and Aami Stadium. The bridge has been an exciting and explorative project for the JA team to work on and is now complete.
