Smith and Wallwork project shortlisted for the Structural Awards 2013.

Our living willow bridge, a joint venture with Cambridge University, has been shortlisted in the small practices and sustainability categories. The judges said ‘This is probably the first time that a living, growing structure has made it to the Structural Awards. The team devised an ingenious solution using a combination of practical experimentation with the living materials and theoretical design calculation to deliver an unusual, unique and economic bridge.’
