‘High Tide Street’ is an ambitious bridge concept from architecture student James Gardener. Gardener is proposing that this floating bridge be built across the Thames River in London, England to connect the towns of Woolwich and Silvertown. This bridge would serve as both a walkway and a cultural hub for both cities.

‘High Tide Street’ would contain an oyster bar, concert hall and library, amongst other attractions. Building a bridge that is more than just a means across is a great idea. Why waste the space when you can exploit it and turn it into one of the hottest spots in town? Stats for Floating English Footbridges Trending: Older & Mild
