Tanderrum Bridge

  • No categories

Tanderrum Bridge (formerly called Batman Avenue Bridge) is in the heart of Melbourne, linking Queen Victoria Gardens to the Rod Laver Arena Complex. As a part of the landscape, the bridge is conceived as an extension of the ground; building on the topography of the park, the launch points of the bridge are built up as mounds. The pedestrian bridge spans of the highway in two segments; slender and understated as a structural mass, the cladding on the undercroft of the bridge underlines the importance of the reflected ceiling plan as the main facade of the bridge.

As a piece of infrastructure, this project brings engineering, architecture, and the landscape into conversation in order to produce a public space, not only as a link, but as destination. In turn, the project brings the remote Rod Laver Arena Complex back into proximity for the larger public realm.

The project is a second collaboration with John Wardle Architects and is being created as part of the Melbourne and Olympic Parks Masterplan.
