Paddington Basin is home to two very special bridges, both doubling up as pedestrian crossings and as (quite literally) moving pieces of public art. The Fan Bridge gracefully splays as it rises, while the Rolling Bridge (conceived by Thomas Heatherwick) curls itself up into a ball like a shy caterpillar.
Both bridges 'perform' on Wednesday and Friday at 12noon (fan first, then rolling) and Saturday afternoons at 2pm, so next time you're in the area, go and catch the show.
