Booklicious: A Bridge for Mr. Beckett

December 14, 2009


Dublin's new Samuel Beckett Bridge was officially opened December 10, as Beckett's niece, nephew and hundreds of Dubliners looked on. The 40-million-euro structure was designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, who also created Dublin's James Joyce Bridge seven years ago. Stretching 120 meters across River Liffey, the bridge links Guild Street on the northside to Sir John Rogerson's Quay on the southside.
