Brisbane City Sketchers on Kurilpa Bridge

The name KURILPA reflects the Australian Aboriginal word for the South Brisbane and West End area, and means "place for water rats".
The bridge cost $63million to build and is the world’s largest hybrid tensegrity bridge. Only the horizontal spars conform to tensegrity principles. The Kurilpa Bridge is a multiple-mast, cable-stay structure based on principles of tensegrity producing a synergy between balanced tension and compression components to create a light structure which is incredibly strong.
