take off eh - spanning Canadian water part 3

An update from last months post...."bridges eh - spanning canadian waters part 2"
The CMLC (Calgary Municipal Land Corporation) with public consultation
has selected 3 of the 37 original proposals to move into next stage of development.

out of the 37 submissions 2 of my top 5 made the CMLC's shortlist of 3.
and the bridges are....

my pick to win
submission #29
RFR (Paris, France) and Halsall (Calgary)
This design appears to grow from the banks of the river, skipping across the surface effortlessly from shore to shore.

Submission #15
my second choice
ARUP with Falco Schmitt Architects (London, UK)

Submission #17
Buckland and Taylor LTD. (Vancouver) and Kitchell Architecture and Design (Victoria BC)

Congratulations to Victoria's
kitchell - architecture + design for making the top 3
