Kew Gardens Lake Bridge – Sackler Crossing

The beautiful bridge crossing the lake at Kew Gardens, designed by architect John Pawson and completed in 2006.

I love the edge of the bridge which is constructed of flat bronze posts. When one approaches they appear to be solid, once on the bridge viewing the lake they ‘vanish’.

    It would be good is you corrected this page: the bridge is known as the Sackler Crossing, not the Slacker Crossing (!).
