The Bridge of Aspiration, London, © Bernardo Ricci Armani

Twisting high above Floral Street in Covent Garden, the “Bridge of Aspiration”, designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects, provides the dancers of the Royal Ballet School with a direct link to the Royal Opera House of London.

It’s apparent twisting and turning path reflects the complex ways of hope and ambition, will and discipline, skills and strength, that ballerinas need to achieve themselves.

The “Bridge of Aspiration” with its bars leading to an unseen future becomes a metaphor for life.
