Bridgescape : the art of designing bridges. Frederick Gottemoeller. Despite their utilitarian nature, many bridges constitute the most visually stunning structures of our cities and towns. In Bridgescape: The Art of Designing Bridges, Frederick Gottemoeller brings the aesthetic aspects of bridge design within the grasp of all architects, engineers, and designers.

This innovative approach challenges the reader to design and build bridges that are both functional and pleasing to the eye. Gottemoeller demystifies the creative process by breaking down the bridge into its most fundamental elements-line, form, and placement in the site, as well as color, texture, and ornamentation. The author shows how to plan bridges that take into account symbolism, historical meaning, and our ability to understand the visual world.

But Bridgescape is more than an introduction to the aesthetic and engineering aspects of building a bridge. The author also discusses the dynamics of involving local authorities and the community in bridge design. From highway to pedestrian bridges, this book offers realistic and enlightening solutions for incorporating visually distinctive bridges within real-world situations and contexts.

Working from the "skeleton" of the bridge-its girders, piers, and abutments-to its decorative features-color, carving, and texture-the author offers practical, easy-to-understand guidelines that can be applied to even the smallest of bridge design projects. Just a few key factors can profoundly enhance a bridge's appearance. Distinct from the technical books that separate architecture from engineering, Bridgescape offers a refreshing survey of the power of aesthetics in modern bridge design.

A sixteen-page color insert enlivens the text, which is generously illustrated with over photographs and drawings of bridges. Both engineers and architects will find Bridgescape an indispensable reference volume and an inspiring introduction to the aesthetic side of bridge engineering.
