Denver’s Fentress Architects recently won an American Architecture Award for the firm’s design of the Lincoln Avenue Pedestrian Bridge in Lone Tree, Colo. The 170-ft-long, asymmetric cable-stayed structure extends across Lone Tree’s busiest street, Lincoln Avenue, where more than 90,000 cars travel daily. The bridge’s main pylon, created in the shape of a leaf with a three-dimensional lattice truss, rises 100 ft above the road. Fentress worked with engineering firm Thornton Tomasetti and contractor Hamon Infrastructure, among others, on the project.
