The Bootle Log

Liverpool, open competition, January 2007

Bridges are the most basic, yet most symbolic infrastructure elements. The Bootle Log represents the bridge in its most basic and most symbolic way and refers to the very first day of the invention of the bridge. In this suburban setting along a centuries old canal that is historically deeply rooted in the times of the industrial revolution and nowadays used for recreation, the Bootle Log is both: nostalgic and science fiction.
