The Garden Bridge, by  Heatherwick Studio.

Sadly, this bridge did not get built, but it is an interesting case study for children to explore. Designed by Thomas Heatherwick studios, see  wonderful images of the design process for this bridge. 

Nine Elms Bridge, London, by ALA

Architects often enter competitions and this beautiful bridge is an entry in a bridge competition. It is designed to give shared and equal access to pedestrians, wheelchair users and cyclists without the need for any lifts. See the Bridge

Design Through Making: Build Your Bridge!

Adapt the resource here to enable children to build a bridge collaboratively using the Design Through making approach. See the Resource.
