Upper Orwell Crossing Rendering

The upper Orwell Crossings are well publicised now, however, the designs shown are a daydream. The bridge will not be built to this design. With the eventual rise of costs, and the actual business case suggesting a lower bridge that will open, it is interesting to visualise a possible design. In this post I am trying to visualise what the possible bridge could look like.


Foster and Partners designed bridge

The above image is the basis of the next renders. All images below are of a SketchUp model I created. Rendered then exported as an image.

render 2 !

render 1 !

reder open from bridge !

The below image features a Google Earth screenshot for the background. Not perfect, but it works.

Open, boat

A composite image – Takes a long time – have to render each bridge position, creates an effective image though.
