Tower Bridge Art Print, LONDON
Art print from the London Series. Tower Bridge and Shard
It is a bascule bridge 244 m long and 7 m wide, with two towers 65 m high. The central distance of 61 m between the two towers is divided into two cams, which can be raised up to an angle of 83 degrees to allow river traffic to pass. Although each cam weighs more than 1,000 tonnes, they are counterbalanced to minimize the energy required to lift them, which takes one minute. The original hydraulic mechanism used pressurized water stored in six accumulators. The water was pumped into the accumulators using steam engines.
The tower is 306 meters high and has 73 floors. The building has been designed with an irregular triangular shape from the base to the top. It has been completely covered in glass.
