Stratford Town Centre Link, London
Transport for London
Martin Knight Architects
The Town Centre Link forms a vital pedestrian crossing over one of London’s busiest sections of rail. The 130m bridge serves shoppers, residents, workers and visitors to the Westfield Stratford City retail destination and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The bespoke LED lighting integrated within the glazed sides of the 12m-wide deck offers pedestrians amenity lighting while enhancing the nighttime environment with colour and movement. The undulating blue and white linear features emphasise the bridge's rhythm, asymmetric details and subtle curvature, providing an atmospheric pedestrian experience.
