Bridging the Gap


The bridge Santiago Calatrava designed at the entrance to Jerusalem will be dedicated on May 26. Harry at the stellar Jerusalemite has some great pics and a post about the design gem that Israelis have mixed opinions about (obvies. Wouldn't it be naive to expect a consensus?).

Actually I heard a couple of days ago that the ceremony will take place at the end of June, not May as previously reported.

I have to admit, from afar the bridge looks silly. You can't really see the strings so it looks like a crooked tower. Up close however it is astounding!

Silly or not, it's amazing that J-lem has a starchitect structure!
