The Mermaid

'The Mermaid' bridge is situated in a private park (400ha) in Auckland, New Zealand. It bridges two artificial lakes that on request have been coloured a lovely intense blue, using environmentally friendly pigment. This sculpture bridge is the culmination of my cube-skeleton series, which range from miniature to monumental. The bridge consists of 22 cubes each 3 x 3 x 3 metres of welded steel tubes in an exuberant shape. The transparent walkway winds itself like a jewel between the cubes without taking the slightest notice of strict regulations, which makes traversing the bridge a thrilling adventure.
