Not what we might have expected. 🙂 Nice.
Thank you Janet! 🙂 🙂
Not like the Venice I saw at all!!!
Totally. 🙂 Nothing Rialto-ish about this bridge. 🙂
I suspect that’s the Rialto bridge, by Mr Calatrava. It was such a disaster that it cost pretty much three times its budget and Mr Calatrava has now been forced to refund the council.
It’s a brilliant piece of architecture, but sometimes archistars do make big cock-ups.
You’re right! I hadn’t heard of the Calatrava bridge but looking at my other photos and Google, that’s definitely it. The issues surrounding the bridge and other works by Mr. Calatrava make for interesting reading. His designs certainly look beautiful but often at too high a price, in terms of money and subsequent headaches.
