2019 Australian Urban Design Awards: Commendation for Built Projects – Local and Neighbourhood Scale

Bridge of Remembrance by Denton Corker Marshall

Jury citation

This project links the Hobart Cenotaph and Soldiers Memorial Avenue in the Queens Domain through the implementation of a pedestrian and cycling bridge that overcomes a fundamental disconnect between two important Hobart landmarks separated by the Tasman Highway.

The bridge has been designed through careful consideration of the area’s historical context and the infrastructural limitations imposed by the site. The gentle fold and twist of the bridge’s profile defines a structural intent that absorbs the formal thickening required at various moments along its span. The project sensitively handles the requirement to balance the “touching” points where the structure meets the ground at both ends. The bridge is a heroic yet sophisticated gesture that provides an important connection and new landmark for Hobart’s visitors and residents.

Location: Hobart (TAS)
