Ōtākaro is calling for design concepts from suitably experienced and qualified design teams (each a Respondent) for a pedestrian/cycle bridge across Ōtākaro/Avon River in the North Frame within the Avon River Precinct (ARP).

Ōtākaro’s objectives for the North Frame Pedestrian Bridge are to:
• Express an essence of the identity of Christchurch;
• Be a beautiful, signature addition to the urban environment;
• Provide a direct link between Victoria Square and the North Frame for pedestrians and cyclists;
• Be accessible to all people;
• Support the objectives and outcome of the ARP (page 8 – 13, Supporting Information); and
• Be a durable, affordable and safe crossing of the river.

The North Frame Pedestrian Bridge will be part of a series of artist-influenced or artist-led elements included within the landscape of the ARP. The ones delivered by Ōtākaro are defined as bespoke landscape elements and will compliment a number of other artist-led projects that will be delivered by the Christchurch City Council (CCC).

As such it is essential that an experienced and respected artist is a core member of the design team. It is also expected that a structural engineer and quantity surveyor are members of the design team.
