Yesterday we went to Charmouth, for the opening of the footbridge we designed with the Dorset County Council engineers.
In this beautiful location on the World Heritage Site of the Jurassic coast and the South West Coastal Path the intention was from the beginning not to create a bridge that would become a focal point but to create a place that would enhance the experience of crossing the river and become a viewing point for this landscape. The result is in keeping with the scale of the previous bridge but bows towards the sea and widens in its centre, creating an overhanging balcony over the river, almost a public space in the middle of the bridge.
It has been a really productive collaboration with the design team from day one, and yesterday was a great pleasure to see so many people enjoying the bridge.

We've just finished installing Iconic site, now placed on the historic Fort Road Hotel in Margate.
To coincide with the opening of the Turner Contemporary, Iconic Site was commissioned to question the future of the Fort Road Hotel, now laying derelict, one of the last building in the area that JMW Turner would have recognised if he were to visit Margate today.
and a small video of the switch on.

We arrived in Gaborone, Botswana, Thursday morning at the invitation of the Maitisong festival and the British Council. Limelight will be installed tomorrow at Riverwalk from 7pm. We are very much looking forward to exploring the city and meeting some of its residents over the next six days.
