Sundial Bridge

Sundial Bridge in Redding California.

 

The Sundial Bridge in Redding glowed bright pink Thursday night, October 20th. The bridge lighting marked Nor-Cal Think Pink's 15th year. Think Pink is a community effort to promote breast cancer awareness.

 

Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava conceived the Sundial Bridge’s design, his first free-standing bridge in the United States.

The bridge is best seen at night when it is lit up. Walking under the Sundial and looking up one definitely feels as though floating in outer space... and a little dizzy.

Interestingly the details of white broken mosaic tiles seem to be a homage to Antonio Gaudy. And one view from under the tower looking up echos the Casa Mila roof top sculpture garden in Barcelona.
