132nnr_bridge house

There’s nothing new about bridge housing as this 1793 proposal (by the poignantly named W. Bridges) for a bridge over the River Avon at the Rocks of St Vincent from Sion Row illustrates. This multi-storied bridge was to have been wedged into the Clifton Gorge at Bristol. Above its single arch span, the structure incorporated a chapel, public offices, warehouses and a corn exchange. So the creativity of the 132nnr WHAT_bridge lies not in its architectural proposition but in the discovery of the site in the first place!
