Camouflaged bridge offers new options for urban industrial design.

New Zealand-based artist Mike Hewson has tried to add a little bit of life to an otherwise dead space in the hope of it being preserved in the future. He achieved this by designing a bridge in a way that it would blend in to the background – in this case a bright blue sky.

Hewson's work is called “Deconstruction 2013,”a project which attempts to highlight the temporary uselessness of the bridge by effectively deleting it from its engagement with the rest of the streetscape. This is because it links two buildings, one active and one marked for demolition, and until the demolished building is rebuilt, the bridge serves no purpose.
