Arachnid-Inspired Architecture

A stunning structure, the Webb Bridge is as practical as it is beautiful. Located in Melbourne, Australia, it is part of an art project that rehabilitated the previous Webb Rail Bridge.

Designed by Denton Corker Marshall and Robert Owen, the Webb Bridge was inspired by the Koori eel trap, which looks like a cylindrical wicker basket. Of course, you can’t help but be reminded of spiders due to the structure’s web-like appearance.

These beautiful images of the Webb Bridge were photographed by Wojtek Gurak.
