TQ2‘TQ2 bridge’ is a pedestrian and cycle bridge in Bristol, UK, designed by London-based practice niall mclaughlin architects. Also called ‘meads reach’, the structure is constructed out of stainless steel which fans out to an organic abutment on either side.

The result of an extensive study of materiality and artificial light, the arc of the bridge picks up light from the surrounding elements and is intended to change according to the weather conditions and time of day.
