The Architecture Centre was pleased to welcome renowned engineer Alan Baxter to speak about bridge engineering. He was joined by architects Martin Knight (Knight Architects) and Renato Benedetti (McDowell + Benedetti) to discuss the collaborative approach to bridge design. 

Alan Baxter Associates has worked with both architects on a number of projects including Scale Lane Bridge in Hull which is featured as one of the case studies in the Desire Lines exhibition.

Martin Knight talks about projects by his bridge-specific practice.

Renato Benedetti designs bridges as destinations.
