The lifts are transparent so that the clients can experience the views all around. There are two separate lifts for each client, and the lifts are on separate sides of the table, giving the clients each the power of ownership in terms of space.
Miranda Kerr, chosen client and model, can use the bridge as a backdrop for her photos, and as she moves through the bridge many different views can be captured. The steel beams join at a point in the upper centre of the bridge, with beams also coming out from the meeting space at the lower centre of the bridge. This shows the power of balance.
The slabs are not positioned in a straight line. Instead they are offset from one another so that the clients can experience different views, depending on which area of the bridge they are standing in. Power of position.
The mezzanine level is high up in the centre of the bridge. It shows the power of position. This area could be used by Merkel, the other chosen client, as it overlooks the hills and trees. This peaceful and calm atmosphere would be highly appreciated by someone of high political power.
The bridge is open with balustrades rather than walls to enable the clients to have a full view of their surrounding environment. Power of position.
