In the latest issue of The Arup Journal, we examine six projects linked by the originality of our approach to them, including the magnificent new Queensferry Crossing in Scotland. Now the world’s longest three-tower, cable-stayed bridge, the design of this new route over the Firth of Forth features cables that cross at mid-span to provide strength and stiffness to the slender towers and deck.
Also in this issue, read how we developed the twists and curves of the new Raffles City complex in Hanzhou; adopted a digital approach to the design of an underground gallery at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; and devised a new model for studying the behaviour of unreinforced masonry buildings.
Our work on microgrid projects for villages in Nigeria and Kenya, and a sustainable masterplan for Barangaroo South on Sydney Harbour are both concerned, in different ways, with sustainable development and energy management. Read more in the magazine.
