Judges commented: "By resisting the urge to light the arches of this footbridge, instead ‘floating’ it on a bed of light, the designers have highlighted the river below and created a distinctive night-time identity for the bridge. A restrained and sophisticated approach to lighting a large structure."

The awards were announced last night at the Footbridge Conference in Berlin, Germany. Other winners are listed here.
